Error NT_STATUS_BAD_NETWORK_NAME printing from Mac to Linux Printer

Just fixed. Was getting

Tree connect failed (NT_STATUS_BAD_NETWORK_NAME)

when printing from my Mac to a printer hanging off a Ubuntu machine.

Having recently upgraded Ubuntu that was probably the culprit.

The short answer was to restart the following on the Ubuntu machine.

$sudo service cups restart
$sudo service smbd restart
