We upgraded a customer from V5R4 to V7R1 last week. When I say "upgrade",
I really mean a new install. The old system had two print devices that
pointed to the same LAN printer but on different ports, as follows:
First print device (PS):
Second print device (P1):
As you can see, both print devices reference the same printer on the
network, but the ports are different.
The problem we have is that if we start one of the writers (say P1) the
other writer stops responding. If we then end P1 we can start PS, but now
P1 won't work. On the V5R4 system worked just fine, but not now on V7R1.
Is there something I've overlooked?
if you want to understand why that is, there are many good books on
the design of operating systems. please pass them along to redmond
when you're done reading them :)
