Over WAN, the timers on the controller description may not be allowing
enough time for device to go active. Try increasing the timer value
DEVWAITTMR to like 60 seconds.
Have to Vary off/on after change.
Is this a new setup or a recent change?

Subject: printer not varying on

[ Picked text/plain from multipart/alternative ]

We have a AS/400 530-2153. They are connected to various branches through
Ethernet and SDLC line. The problem now with the branch printers. They seem
to be just in Vary On Pending status. We can't seem to get them to Active

These are 5224 IBM printers.  These printers are connecting through NT
server. The NT server is connected through a router and this router is
connected through another router. This router is connected to the AS/400. We
are using Microsoft SNA Server 5250 emulation.

These printers are connected to virtual controllers and virtual printer
devices. Only the controllers are on Active status while the devices are in
Vary On Pending. So, the writers are not starting. For your information, we
are running Version 3 Release 7.

Solutions please.
