After a tdb wipe, I ended up with no users who can manage printers.
This at least made the behavior consistently broken. I ended up trying
samba 3.3 and 3.2 seeking some way to manage printers. Only by going
back to samba-3.2.15 built from a Fedora 10 source RPM was I able to
restore functionality by way of the printer admin option. The
SePrinterOperatorPrivilege did not seem to work in any version no matter
what I did. Surely other folks are managing printers with sambas later
than 3.2.x I would think. Anyone have any experience like this?
