NDPS spool directories not cleaned

Hi,

Since Netware 6.5 supportpack 2a we are experiencing the following problem.
The spool directory's of NDPS (SYS:NDPS/*.PSM/*.PA/) are not emptied.. So
every now and then we have to delete those files manually.
We are running now Supportpack 4a with NDPS version:

-NDPSM v3.01q
-NDPS Broker V3.0.11

Thanks for helping.

Regards,

Frank

Re: NDPS spool directories not cleaned

Make sure your pritners are not configured to retain jobs. By default,
they are not, but you can configure pritners to retain jobs.

Marcel,

Thanks, but checked it and retention is off. Also the Retained directory
is empty.

Anybody else a suggestion why the jobs are not deleted in the ndps spool
directory?

Regards,

Frank

Re: NDPS spool directories not cleaned

The only time I've experienced that is when the server hosting NDPS has
crashed. The jobs that were printing sometimes get stuck in the
spooler.

So are you still on SP2a? If so, you should go to SP4a or SP5.

Re: NDPS spool directories not cleaned

Barry,

We are running Netware 6.5 Supportpack 4a. So... But we are experiencing
this now for 3 or 4 months.. It's very anoying to delete the 'spool' files
by hand..

Any other suggestions?

Re: NDPS spool directories not cleaned

I wonder if your local printer configs are causing the jobs to be
retained.

Open the Printer & Faxes applet and select one of the printers that has
retained jobs. Click on File|Server Properties and make sure there
isn't anything in there that controls job retention. Also check the
Properties for the printer. Look on the Advanced tab under 'Keep
printed documents' and 'Hold mismatched documents'. Also look on the
'NPDS Job Holds' tab.

NDPS spool directories not cleaned

Frank,

I ran across your post on this issue, I'm wondering if you ever resolved
the problem. We are seeing the same thing w/ 6.5 sp5

Re: NDPS spool directories not cleaned

His post was nearly a year ago and 4 SPs different to yours, so I
suggest you start your own fresh thread on this one.
