Backing up CUPS


I have the need to backup my CUPS configuration, drivers, etc used for printing...key being quick recoverability in the case print server goes down.

I was thinking writing a script that tars everything up and scp/rsh to another host directory.

What would I need to "backup" in this scenario?

Any thoughts appreciated

/etc/cups.d and /etc/printcap. As always, test it and see if the restore works

What about Samba stuff? Assuming printers are used via samba on windows boxes as well...just smb.conf?
