RE: Spool file goes to SAV, but doesn't print



fixed

Spool file goes to SAV without printing when the print writer throws an error. Look at the print writer job log for the error. Usually it's an unescaped invalid character in the print stream or something to that effect, though it can be an error thrown by the printer or the SNMP server on the printer.

Not sure what yoou mean by "other side of a WAN connection". Do you mean going through a firewall? If so, then the answer is no.

Current driver for the printer is IBMSNMPDRV. This is a Xerox 3635MFP.
Manufact type/model is set to *LEXOPTRAT. There is also a wscst used for force drawer 2 for legal size.

John, is this device on the other side of a WAN connection? Depending
on the quality of the WAN link, you might have better luck avoiding
the PJL drivers. I've found that the PJL drivers are not as robust on
WAN connections as, for example, SNMP.

I've found that most modern print servers appear to support SNMP. You
should be able to try this out with a change to the device description.

Change Device Desc (Printer) (CHGDEVPRT)

Type choices, press Enter.

System driver program . . . . . SYSDRVPGM > *IBMSNMPDRV

This is a device, not a remote outq.

Do you use a remote outq to do your printing?

Maybe it makes it the printer buffer and then doesn't print. If

not
current on ptf's that could be an issue or maybe the firmware oh
the printer is old as well.

The countdown clock on the i is a tad over two weeks, so this

I am wondering how a spool file to a device can go to SAV without
printing. This happened twice last week.

Could be something wrong with the printer, I guess. But, I
watched it yesterday and no issues. I changed the activation
timer from the default of 170 to 300 a few minutes ago, thinking
that the printer had gone to sleep when the spool file was sent
and somehow that was enough to have the output get discarded.

System has not had PTFs applied in years. Just wondering if this
is an issue that IBM fixed years ago and out sa was too uninvolved
to deal with.

How else could a spool file go from RDY to SAV and not be printed?
