Printing Delay on HP4250s

Hello,

We have an issue that we cannot re-produce at will, nor know what is
causing it. Every now and then all of our new HP4250 printers will not
print for about 15 minutes then just come good. They are running on a
cluster NDPS 6.5 SP3 server with the Novell gateway. People can print
fine to other printers during the delay period.

I am quickly running out of ideas. I have tried several TIDs and other
forum ideas but no luck.

If anyone can think of anything I should check I would appreciate it.
Thanks

What if you add the NOSNMP parameter to the end of the gateway load string?

Thanks for the tip Joe. i must say that I have not tried this one - but I
have thought about it. Is SNMP really likely to be causing an issue like
this?

I had problems with LJ1300/1320 printers that would just quit working.
Sometimes a power cycle would get them going, other times it was shutting
down the printer agent and firing it back up. After I added the NOSNMP
parameter all my problems went away.

Re: Printing Delay on HP4250s

I had a Lasrejet 2430 acting similar to this and what I did was to show
the user how to wake the printer from the power saving mode and
increased the time before the printer would go to sleep. Problem solved.

It would seem that the printer is not being prompted to wake itself to
print the Job until some time interval has passed on the server.
