Its working now. :-) Guess what I did wrong. :-[ I forgot to
look at my smb.conf file!
It had some older printer share entries already on my smb.conf file. I
copied the smb.conf file over to the upgraded server, but I forgot that
I already had printer entries on my smb.conf file. My older printer
entries did not include "guest = ok", but the newer printer entries
(Yeah I had identical printer share entries contradicting each other in
the same configuration file. ) :-D
Anyway, I was able to set up printer shares for the first time, and I
was also able to set up a PDF creator print share, so I am happy.
Another thing that is really neat, is that my print jobs are faster
when they go through the Samba server instead of directly to the printer!
