Thanks for you suggestions Paul; hadn't gotten back to the list until today
check permissions and also compared the printing system files on another 4.3
box; I finally reinstalled the bos.rte.printers filesets and now, although
general users are now able to check the status of a printqueue, still they
cannot submit jobs to printqueues. The new error is:
Quote:> enq -P payday test.o
enq: (FATAL ERROR): Error in msgsnd. Errno = 13.
enq: errno = 13: Permission denied
Fortunately this not my production system, and It is my intention to refresh
the base system, and upgrade to ML 4330-06. Hopefully this should revert
integrety to the system. Meantime, any further suggestion are welcome.
