Our primary Domain Controller is a SBS 2011, which also acts as a printserver.
When connecting with clients as Vista/Win7/Win2008(R2), SMB2 is used when printing directly to the printer device by copying a file to the device, eg:
C:\Temp> copy printfile.txt \\servername\printername
C:\Temp> type printfile.txt >> \\servername\printername
When issueing this with my user (Domain administrator rights), I have no problem.
When issueing this as a regular user i get an Access denied error.
When I disable the SMB2 protocol, this works fine.
But that is not what I want. I want to keep SMB2 for backup and filecopy speed.
For testing purposes I set up another Windows 2008 R2 server as a print server, and on that server it works fine !
The printers are configured exactly the same on both printservers, everyone has print and manage rights. So I guess it must be a another security issue, not ?
Or is it because my SBS 2011 is a domain controller ?
What rigths do I need to give to my users to be able to print by copying a file directly to the device on the printserver ?
Tnx in advance, been struggling with this for 2 days now :-(
