Re: Print queue not clearing up

Before you rebuild the print queue, check what is causing it to get spooled up. Are your printers OK, online? Without any problems-toner, paper jam etc.

what does log file say???-/var/adm/lp/log
Also what does mailq -d -v say?

Re: Print queue not clearing up

How printers have been configured?? Are they remote/network/jetdirect printers??

If JetDirect, then what does following say??
hpnpadmin -v "print_queue"
Also
lp -d"print" -odebug /tmp/log "file_name"

Does it give any information?

Re: Print queue not clearing up

These printers are jet-direct printers. The logs are not showing any errors

Re: Print queue not clearing up

Hi,

Did you try to stop and restart the spooler (you can do this easy with SAM->Printer and Plotter->LP Spooler->Print Requests->Actions->Stop Print Spooler...->Actions->Start Print Spooler...)?

Best Regards,

Re: Print queue not clearing up

Did you check througly if hpnpadmi -v "print_queue" did not report any problem??

Also you can directly print and check.

hpnpf -x "print_queue" -s /tmp/debug.log -N "some_asci_file"

Check log file.
