iPrint on OES Linux

I have installed iPrint on OES Linux and it works fine until I reboot my
Linux server. When I do, I notice that both the DriverStore (novell-
idsd) and the PrintManager (novell-ipsmd) both start up. I cannot view
my current printers via the iPrint webpage, I cannot print to an existing
printer, and I cannot add new printers via iManager. Looking at the
PrintManager page in iManager I see that it is down. If I try to restart
it, it goes back down right away.

If I goto a shell prompt and restart the services manaually (rcnovell-
idsd restart and rcnovell-ipsmd restart), I get a failure when trying to
unload the service but the service starts up without any errors. Now I
can manage my printers and print.

Has anyone found a resolution to this issue?

Thanks.

>>has anyone found a resolution to this issue?

Not yet, but that is the exact same problem I am working on.
I may have an answer by the end of today. Iniitally I wasn't even able
to create a printer because of the problems you are talking about. I
fdisked late afternoon yesterday and now have a fresh install. I'm
tackling iPrint first off to see if I can make it work. If I get it
working then I'm going to retrace my first install steps and see if I
can find out where it breaks. That may point out the problem.

Thanks. On my system, when I issue the "rcnovell-idsd restart" and
the "rcnovell-ipsmd restart" commands, the system works fine until I
restart it.

Re: iPrint on OES Linux

Anthony,

i cant help you either.
but you have gotten farther than me... i'd be overjoyed to get to where you
are.

When i go to create the Print Manager, i get
Error: Create Print Manager Failure
java.net.ConnectException: Connection refused
IPP Error: 0x40001


what documentation are you using to Install iPrint? do you have a URL link
i could also look at?

Any info would be most helpful

Re: iPrint on OES Linux

I installed OES and SLES at that same time, so iPrint automatically
installed for me. I did follow the following link to help figure out how
to configure it.

http://www.novell.com/documentation/oes/index.html?
page=/documentation/oes/iprint_lx/data/front.html#bktitle

I'll let you know if I figure anything else out.

I think the first time I installed iFolder, but I think it install 2.5
when using the media kit. Currently this box doesn't have iFolder on
it and iPrint is working fine. Isn't there a problem with running
iFolder and iPrint on the same box?

Re: iPrint on OES Linux

uhhhh,

not sure about the iFolder 3.0.

but as i recall, that version is NOT part of the OES Linux media...

So i dont think so.
i will check to see if any version of iFolder is loaded.


But are you saying that iFolder and iPrint cant exist on the same Linux Box?

iFolder <> i Print



yeah, so it sounds like
iFolder & iPrint cant coexist on the same OES linux Core Build.

Hanish, can you confirm??

They can co-exist on the same box. I came accross a bug that had been
reported where ifolder 3 and iPrint would stomp on each others apache
configs, but AFAIK its only iFolder 3.0.

FYI my new iPrint install quit working after I rebooted.
Trying to track what is happening.

Re: iFolder <> i Print

Okay here are my findings. On a reboot three iPrint processes are
running ipsmd (x2) and idsd. If you use iManager at this point and
"Manage the Print Manager" you will see that the Print Manager is down.
If you look at the driver store it is up. If you tell iManager to
start the print manager it will attempt to do so...go to "active"
state...but if you hit refresh it will imediately restate that it is
down. Interesting that the ipsmd processes stay running throughout the
exercise. If you down the driver store idsd goes away. Now...if you
manually kill the ipsmd processes from the console and THEN use
iManager to start the store and the manager....all is well. Please
note that 4 processes are present now, which appear to be the processes
that must be running to have a running system.

Those processes are:

ipsmd (x2)
idsd
[iprintgw]

I assume running the rc scripts that anthony is using induces the same
behavior. I'll verify.

Re: iPrint on OES Linux


I have a similar situation.. If you run "ps -ax", is you iprint gateway
[defunct] after your server reboots?
