nope...Mine is non-existant. At least yours tried to run.

Problem found

Check your log files in /var/opt/novell/log/iprint.
I am seeing errors in the ipsmd log of:

FATAL The iPrint Manager was unable to read the generation number from
eDir or its database. Error: FFFFFD8F.

Re: iPrint on OES Linux


ipsmd is the iprint manager, there should only be 1... idsd is the
driver store.

on my server, stopping ipsmd with the "/etc/init.d/novell-ipsmd stop"
would send back a failed message, but would shut it down. A ps command
would then not list it.

In my situation, the apache logs would mention the 631 port already in
use and not load. The driver store always worked, but the manager had
strange behavior on original boot.

I set up a script to run the unload scripts for apache, tomcat, iprint
manager, iprint driver store, etc. And then load them in order with
apache first.

Iprint would then work correctly for me until next reboot. However,
after adding a couple hundred printers I started having a constant
"bad" state on the iprint manager https://serverdns/PsmStatus.

Personally I am waiting for oes sp1 before attempting to migrate.

I always get two instances of ipsmd, no matter how it is launced.
<shrug>. Yes the driver store seems to be fine, but there are issues
with ipsmd. See my other post.

Oh yah. Me too. But it's a fairly good first attempt, still rather
beta class in some regards. Looks like we get to play Guinea pig.
They need to fix quite a bit of stuff if they want it to make its way
off everyone's test bench and into actual usage. At least there's a
workaround for this problem.

Beta Max

Man,

this Post has generated more activity than all the others in the last 3
weeks Combined!

Just plain sucks.
I commend you two for hacking through this.

But this is MUCH too BETA for my taste.
When rebooting your server Breaks the product you installed...


oh well.
whatever

I don't know I've seen a lot of BSOD's after rebooting windows. <VBG>

Re: Problem found

Also if you notice on a reboot that no pid file is created in
/var/opt/novell/run which is why 'novell-ipsmd stop' doesn't work.

It also resolves why the "Shutting Down iPrint" message "failed"
appears when 'novell-ipsms restart' is issued.

FYI if I run 'novell-ipsmd restart' after a reboot I end up with 4
ipsmd processes....very messy. I suggest grepping on iprint and
killing off the ipsmd processes before running 'novell-ipsmd restart'
or 'novell-ipsmd start'
