Samba printserver works for Win10 Pro but not Win10 Home edition

Samba - General mailing list
Hello,

I have set up a Samba printserver at a school. The server is a
standalone server, connected to no domain. I have installed printers
with Cups, and uploaded Windows printerdrivers to the shared driver
folder. I can add the shared printers in a Windows 10 Pro client,
without any hassle. When I try the same in any Win 10 Home edition, I
get Windows error messages like "error 0x000006d1" and likewise. This
could possibly be fixed on each individual PC with a registry fix like
this:
http://blog.realcomputerguy.com/2013/06/fix-error-0x000006d1-using-level-3.html.
The problem is, that we can not make such a demand to pupils on a school
that brings their own device. I believe there must be a permission
problem somewhere in my smb.conf, even if guests are allowed,
permissions are set to 777 in all relevant folders etc.
Anyone that have experienced this ?

This bug is open since 8 years: :-/
https://bugzilla.samba.org/show_bug.cgi?id=6559


What Samba version do you use? 4.6 contains several printer enhancements
that maybe fix the problem. If you still run <4.6, please update to
4.6.3, retry, and update the bug report:
* If it works, add this info to the bug report.
* If it fails:
   - upload a new level 10 debug log file
   - add your use case and latest information to the bug

If you run 4.6 and require uploading 32-bit drivers, additionally apply
the patch from:
https://bugzilla.samba.org/show_bug.cgi?id=12761
This will be fixed in 4.6.4.



Regards,
Marc
