Samba printer queues
force printername = Yes
option in the /etc/samba/smb.conf
This option forces the printer's printername to match the sharename defined in the smb.conf
As such, the printer names will be deployed to workstations as defined on the samba server.
Alternatively, the samba update to samba-3.6.3-0.58.1 released in May 2015 includes the patch to purge the printer name cache.
If a printer takes the name of a stale (previously renamed) entry in the cache, then the server retrieves the incorrect printer information from the registry and returns it to the client.
