We used to use Banyan (unix) print queues that sent their jobs to
network/remote print servers - EXTENDNET - or PCs running print server
software, so that before going to the printer the jobs were spooled on a
PC or the EXTENDNET device attached to the printer.
Since we've started using the D-LINK and EXTENDNET print servers with
TCP/IP, our AIX queues have been going down when the printer is off-line
(out of paper), the queue needs to be then manually brought back up by:
I have tried increasing the ptop value as suggested in previous posting
of a similar kind - to no avail.
Is there a way of setting the queues up so that they either don't go
down (when paper is out) - is setting up a cron script a good idea to
check and bring-up the queues or - is there a better way that you know
Could anyone shed some light on this please?
The configuration is as follows:
Print Queue: remote queue, local filtering before sending to print
server, type: hplj3, type of print spooler: BSD
Print Server: DLINK-DP101 - using TCPIP, attached directly to the
Printer: LEXMARK OPTRA
Thanks in advance,
