Issues with the LP spooler

Hello,

 

This is an HP-UX 11.23 system. Earlier this morning, /var was 100% full and printers couldn't print.

I made space available but the spooler got corrupted.

I'm trying to fix it but there are still issues.

Now, when trying to print I got this message:

 

lp: request ids exhausted for printer: lj75_1. contact LP Administrator

 

I'll appreciate your help.

Thank you,

 

Fidel

Check to see if your printers are still enabled. The spooler might have disabled them when the volume filled up.

Hi Kris,

 

Thank you for your response.

The issue was the file outputq got corrupted.

Also, after fixing this, a printer queue was creating tons of print requests such that the print request limit number got exhausted but now all is working fine.
