hpux 11.31 network printing

Hey;

Just upgraded an oracle system to hpux 11.31. I copied over the printers using the

#/usr/sam/lbin/lpmgr -S -xsavedir=/var/tmp/printers
# /usr/sam/lbin/lpmgr -R xsavedir=/var/tmp/printers

combination and the printers are showing up as accepting connections.

# lpstat -plp5200
printer lp5200 is idle. enabled since Jan 27 10:06
fence priority : 0


Yet, when I print something to it, the print job just hangs there.

Anyone got a hint at what I'm doing wrong? This one's probably an easy one as I don't really do printers very often...

Thanks.

Doug

Re: hpux 11.31 network printing

Are these network printers? Do you have them defined in your hosts file?

Re: hpux 11.31 network printing

Hey;

They are network printers, not defined in /etc/hosts; however, their IP addresses are defined in the printer interface definition.

I've verified that I can ping the IP and that I can telnet to the IP/9100 and print something manually. (hello, world).

I just tried adding another network printer and it's complaining about not having hppi or jetadmin commands available. So far, a search of software.hp.com isn't showing anything for network printing at all, much less freely available software.

Thanks for the reply.

Doug

Re: hpux 11.31 network printing

Hi,

I guess that you have hppi software installed in HP-UX 11v3. Are you comming from hppi or oldest JetAdmin on your old server?

In the past I had to make a change similar to yours, but coming from Jetadmin to HPPI, was necessary done a conversion process that generates the tool "transferqueue" (opt / hpnpl / bin / transferqueue). This conversion proccess must be done in your new system after recover the spool schema (lpmgr -R). For detailed and useful information:
#man transferqueue

Rgds.

Re: hpux 11.31 network printing

Hey

Problem was the lack of jet direct software. We found it, installed it, and everything's working perfectly. Thanks again for your responses.
