ndps snapins for nwadmin

HELP! I've lost the ability to use iManager and need to start removing
NDPS printers from workstations. Was hoping somebody could point me in
the direction of the snapins for the nwadmin program, which is my last
hope! I've searched all over for them on the Novell site and within the
forums, but have not found one spot where I can download them. Lot's of
discussion about them, but no place to actually get them.
I have nwadmin version 5.1.9f loaded on my XP workstation. I need to
start removing these printers tomorrow (12/6) so am under the gun so to
speak. Any assistance is greatly appreciated!

They should be there by default, but you need to have the NDPS client
stuff installed

Re: ndps snapins for nwadmin

And with "by default", we're talking about "in the SYS:PUBLIC\WIN32
directory of a NetWare server where NDPS/iPrint is actually installed
and running".

i.e. If you've downloaded and installed NWADMN32 5.1.9f on its own, no
the NDPS snap-ins are not there by default. Running NWADMN32.EXE from
the SYS:PUBLIC\WIN32 directory of a server with NDPS installed should
be showing them as available by default.

Re: ndps snapins for nwadmin

I am running the program from the sys:public\win32 directory but I still
am not getting the snapins. All my NDPS printers are showing question
marks next to them in NwAdmin32. I assumed this was because the snapins
were missing. Is that not the case?

Yellow or white? Running from a server where you have installed NDPS?

Re: ndps snapins for nwadmin

During installation of iPrint/NDPS, the NWADMN32.EXE snap-ins are laid
down in the SYS:PUBLIC directory along with all the other server-side
files that are installed. There isn't a package of "NDPS snap-ins for
NWADMN32" that I am aware of; they simply come on the NetWare OS
installation CDs.

If you really had to come up with one, I would say look on the NetWare
OS install CDs for the \PRODUCTS\NDPS\ directory and find the .ZIP
that has files which the .ZIP itself will show are going to be
extracted into a .\PUBLIC\WIN32\ directory. For example, with the
NetWare 6.5 SP4 overlay CDs this is on the Products CD, and the .ZIP
file is IPRINT.ZIP.

I would recommend playing around with that angle using a local copy of
the SYS:PUBLIC\WIN32 directory. Just to reduce the risk of
accidentally extracting the entire IPRINT.ZIP, etc., since that same
..ZIP contains all the SYS:SYSTEM NLMs and similar.

(Be sure and answer Anders' question regarding the color of the
question marks, since that could expose a different reason why a
completely valid NWADMN32 configuration w/NDPS snap-in support present
could still be "showing question marks" for the objects.)

Re: ndps snapins for nwadmin

Just out of curiosity: Assuming a tree with several servers and NDPS
being selected only on one, the one running broker and manager, then
trying NWAdmin32 from any other server would also give this, right? Ie
are the snapins only installed when you select NDPS/IPrint?

That is indeed missing snapins.. I suggest you follow the avenue
suggested by Alan.

Re: ndps snapins for nwadmin

Yes, I believe we were both on the same page there. You would need to
run NWADMN32.EXE from the SYS:PUBLIC\WIN32 directory on a server where
iPrint/NDPS had been installed, because its only during the
installation of iPrint/NDPS that the SYS:PUBLIC directory gets updated
with these iPrint/NDPS-specific files.

Was just wanting to clarify where "by default" actually meant, since
OP had indicated "I have nwadmin version 5.1.9f loaded on my XP
workstation".

Ah. Yes. I missed that, but then he said he tried sys:public. Wonder if
he tried more than one server?
