A new error when I try to create a Driver Profile on a remote system

Hi All

I would like to configure iprint in one of our remote locations (in
India).
We have three printers at that location, the thought is that one of our
employees travel around, they just go to the site iprint/ipp and select
a local printer, and they can print.

So to do it properly I need to create driver profiles for the different
printers.

In our mainoffice I finally got it working by going directly to the ip,
and use the ip in the tree field under login in iManager.

I tried going to the iManager on the remote site
(iprint.remotesite.co.in), and that complained about Winsock, and DNS
(Winsock 11001 - Host name not found in the DNS database).
Our DNS servers up here act as secondaries for the local DNS's, so
that's a bit baffling. I'm not sure which hostname it's referring to.

So I tried using a local workstation, and start iManager on that.
That gave me another error, it first shows the window "loading driver
configuration", and then it stops with an error:
Error message: the operation completed successfully
Error Group: Windows
Error code: 0

Huh?

It could simply be that the server that iManager is running on doesn't
have a correct resolv.cfg configuration. Check the file RESOLV.CFG in
the SYS:ETC directory of the server to see if it inclused the correct
DNS information.

Hi Marcel

Hm, that looks ok, it runs named on the same server, and also on
another, and that's reflected in the resolv.cfg

Try using nslookup.nlm from the server console to see if the name does
really resolve.

Ok, which name is it that it refers to?

My guess is the DNS named used when loading the iPrint Manager.
