Samba Printing in an AD Enviroment (SAMBA, PRINT)

This document (7022709) is provided subject to the disclaimer at the end of this document.


SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 12


Trying to setup Printer from an AD Print Server does not work. No printers show up. Entering commandline

   smbclient -L // -U susenet/myprint -m SMB2

   Connection to failed (Error NT_STATUS_RESOURCE_NAME_NOT_FOUND)

fails too.


The AD does not respond to the minimal client protocol offered by the Samba Server. Setting


   client min protocol = SMB2
   client max protocol = SMB3

resolves the issue.
