Greetings,

I created a guest user and the error message goes away but that doesn't
effect the performance of the printers. That is, the printer drivers
that are slow are still slow and the ones that are fast have remained
fast.

I have updated the log in http://www.brightsands.com/~chris/log.bz2
if anyone has any ideas. --Chris

:>From your log:
:
:check_sam_security: Couldn't find user 'guest' in passdb.
:auth/auth.c:check_ntlm_password(273)
: check_ntlm_password: sam authentication for user [guest] FAILED with error NT_STATUS_NO_SUCH_USER
:auth/auth.c:check_ntlm_password(319)
: check_ntlm_password: Authentication for user [guest] -> [guest] FAILED with error NT_STATUS_NO_SUCH_USER
:
:>From smb.conf
:[global]
:guest account = guest
:guest only = yes
:
:[cr1000]
:guest only = Yes
:

:It appears the user "guest" does not exist. The clues would suggest
:that you either need to add the user "guest", choose an existing user
:for the guest account, or change the printer to something other than
:"guest only". Based on the logs, I'm guessing that all that extra time
:is going toward trying to authenticate a forced user that doesn't exist.
o the printers that work have the same setup?

(good information about SWAT deleted to try to keep this mail size down)

:Hope this helps, Dale

:> | It may have nothing to do with your printing problem, but you should
