CUPS - SAMBA printer preferences not kept

Dear all,

I am new to CUPS. I found an installation of CUPS with SAMBA that we
will deploy soon but there are a couple of problems I need to solve
beforehand and your help would be really appreciated.

I have RedHat 5.1 installation with the following :

CUPS 1.3.7 and SAMBA 3.0.25b

My smb.conf relevant details looks like this :


netbios name = TASSIN
server string = Samba Print Server
workgroup = DOM NAME
security = domain
encrypt passwords = yes
password server = P Z

idmap uid = 10000-20000
idmap gid = 10000-20000
winbind separator = /

log level = 2
log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m
max log size = 1000

wins server = X , Y
name resolve order = hosts wins
interfaces = Z
smb ports = 139
socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_RCVBUF=8192 SO_SNDBUF=8192
hosts allow = 10. 127. 172. 193. 192.
include = /etc/samba/jessie.conf
include = /etc/samba/janey.conf

domain master = no
local master = no
preferred master = no
os level = 0

load printers = yes
printing = cups
printcap name = cups
cups options = raw

comment = All printers
path = /var/spool/samba
browseable = no
public = yes
guest ok = yes
writable = yes
printable = yes
use client driver = no
printer admin = filled in properly

comment = Printer drivers
path = /var/lib/samba/printers
browseable = yes
guest ok = no
read only = yes
write list = filled in properly
create mask = 0664
directory mask = 0775

We use windows clients and I am trying to set all printers in duplex
mode. My problem is that I do it with a correct domain user but the
setting sometimes is kept and sometimes is lost after sometime. Can
someone tell me where these settings are stored ?
