cupsaddsmb with CUPS 1.2.x is trying to connect to a non-existing Samba server unless you specify it with the "-H" parameter (*). See also "cupsaddsmb -h" for short help hints. Run the command like this:
cupsaddsmb -H localhost -U root -v -a
(*) In CUPS 1.2, local printing via Unix domain socket was added, and therefore the CUPS_SERVER environment variable may point to "/var/run/cups/cups.sock" instead (like in CUPS 1.1.) to "localhost". cupsaddsmb assumes the Samba server to be the same as the CUPS server (unless specified with "-H").
