RS/6000 remote printing to numeric remote queue

RS/6000 remote printing to numeric remote queue

Post by Dale Hubl » Thu, 18 Oct 1990 00:01:14

      I am trying to set up some RS/6000's for remote printing via
a mainframe running UTS.  I can use smit to set up all the printers
except an IBM 3800.  The problem with the 3800 seems to be that the
remote queue (rq = 3800) is numeric rather than starting with some
alpha character.  SMIT fails when I try to change the remote queue
name to 3800.  I have manually editted the /usr/lpd/qconfig and
/usr/lpd/qadm.config files.  When I try to create the binary (qconfig.bin)
with "enq -q" I get a message from /usr/lpd/digest

Quote:> error in config file /usr/lpd/qadm.config, line 82
> illegal value `3800'
> Error from digestor /usr/lpd/digest, status = -1024, rv = 4118

     Is there any way to print to this device other than having
the mainframe group add a special queue just for the RS/6000.

Thanks in advance for any help.

1. Sequential Redundant Spooling (remote queue that is a remote queue)

I have a XCd print queue box plugged into a Tek printer and three
Suns.  The XCd box acts as a Unix host with the Tek connected to its
printer port.  The Suns are named c1, c2, & c3 (for discussion).  The
c1 system acts as the main host (serving software, etc.).  The XCd box
cannot handle too many systems trying to talk to it, so I set it up on
c1 as a remote queue.  My hope was to have c1 be the funnel point for
data so only one system was talking to the XCd box.  The c2 and c3
system will spool to the c1 system first then dump to the XCd.  The
GUI admintool asks for the remote host name and the name of the LOCAL
queue name on that remote host.  This not my case.  I want to call out
a remote queue that is a remote queue.  Suggestionsare greatly
appreciated.  (email)
