Printers keeps getting reinstalled/updated

Backend: SLES10SP3 - OES2SP2
Clients: Windows XP SP3 with iPrint client 5.32

We have an issue on some of our Windows XPs running the iPrint client. Some printers is getting reinstalled/updated by the iPrint once a day. We have tried uninstalling the printer manually. Tried uninstalling/reinstalling iPrint client. Tried upgrading iPrint client to both 5.40 and 5.44. Also tried deleting the printer with the commandline-tool iprntcmd.

Any clues?

Re: Printers keeps getting reinstalled/updated

We just did a migration from Netware to OES2 (on SLES10SP3) and I am seeing this also on some clients, tried most of what you have and haven't found fix yet. Will need more time to trace through the problem statons and see what common factors, will keep posted.

Hi!
Same issue, migrating from Netware to OES2. I our case it seems to be solved by disabling auto driver update.

Forgot to mention, but we also stopped auto-update to temporarily solve the problem. But auto-update is a very nice feature to have, and we would rather not do without it.
