Two Managers, One Broker (NetWare) : Missing Profiles

Hi,

I have a NetWare 6.5sp8 environment - all uptodate for ndps etc.

My Broker and one Manager -call them Broker-1 and Manager-1 -are hosted on
the same server and the second (just added) Manager - call it Manager-2 - is
hosted on another server.

When managing printers on Manager-1 I can select Printer Driver Profiles
that have already been defined. However when managing printers created on
Manager-2 there are no Printer Driver Profiles to choose from. Drivers
themselves are listed just fine in either case.

My load line for Broker-1 is: load broker .nkc_broker.ndps.nkc.net.ouc
/noipx /noadvert

My load line for Manager-1 is: load ndpsm .nkc_manager.ndps.nkc.net.ouc
/defragdatabase /enforceuseracl /noipx /nosrs /noens
/setrms=.nkc_broker.ndps.nkc.net.ouc /QLOADBALANCE /dnsname=xyz.a.b.c

My load line for Manager-2 is: load ndpsm
..iPrint_Manager_Staff.Printers.net.ouc /defragdatabase /enforceuseracl
/noipx /nosrs /noens /setrms=.nkc_broker.ndps.nkc.net.ouc /QLOADBALANCE
/dnsname=xyz.a.b.c

Both hosting servers are in the same IP subnet.

Any ideas as to what the problem might be? Is it an issue with filesystem
rights, eDir rights, slp, broker and/or manager configuration, or..?

Thanks,

I figured it out. The Fine Manual says that if you want a profile to be
available on a different iPrint Manager then you need to copy it using
iManager > iPrint > Printer Driver Profile > Copy Printer Driver Profile.

As a part of that sequence you will also select the source and destination
iPrint Managers.

Well, now I know that the Printer Driver Profiles are not stored on the
Broker with the drivers but are stored (somewhere) on the iPrint Manager
used to create them. Makes a kind of sense, although if they were stored on
the Broker then you wouldn't need to be doing this asynchronous copy
procedure to keep your profiles the same everywhere, and you could create
them with any iPrint Manager available.

Anyways, one problem solved by RTFM.

Cheers,
