normally "/var/spool/cups/", as set by the cupsd.conf directive.

The iPrint manager has its data stored in the directory
/var/opt/novell/iprint/<manager name>.psm
The spool directories for the printers are the xxxxxxxx.PA directories
below that directory

Note that cups is used by the iprint client for Linux, but cups and and
the iprint manager are mutually exclusive which is why you can't install
an iPrint client on an OES2 server that runs an iPrint Manager (unless you
do some manual conflict resolution and configuration file editing).

Hi,

On client side, it uses CUPS for job submission. Jobs are queued at /var/spool/cups
On server side, jobs are queued at /var/opt/novell/iprint/<psm_name>.psm/<pa_name>.PA
