Ah, OK. May be a KDEPrint bug then. Or CUPS. But I can't currently test this myself.
Please ping me end of this month or beginning of February should you not hear anything new.
Can you do a few steps of debugging this yourself? Can you see what command the KDE Add Printer Wizard executes when you try to change the backend? Does it prompt you for username/password?
Please quote the printers.conf section for the exisiting printer (obfuscate any sensitive information).
Is this an Active Directory domain?
Does this (change of smb:// backend) work with CUPS on the commandline?
To test, for an existing printer that is connencted with via SMB, find its device URI like this:
lpstat -v printername
It should return s.th. like this:
Device for printername: smb://oldwindowsbox/oldprintersharename
Now run this commandline to change the backend:
lpadmin -p printername -v smb://newwindowsbox/newprintersharename
Can you print to the new address now?
