Dec Print Supervisor V2.5 for OpenVMS I64 V8.3


I have setup the DCPS environment successfully on our test environment about 2 years ago.

Now I are looking at it again. It works fine with a "Xerox WCP 245" product name. No problem printing on test server.

I have now configured DCPS on another OpenVMS system.

Updated the DCPS$STARTUP.COM file with all the queue information

Queues were created successful.

I can issue a Print command and the print job is submitted to the correct queue.......but it does not print.

Job TEST (queue TEST1_TST_REPORTS, entry 927) completed

I did define the logicals PRODUCT_NAME" = "Xerox WCP 245" and SPOOL=" = "TRUE"

I'm using a Generic queue as well. Send print job to generic queue and it is routed to the relevant execution queue.


Two years is a long time, maybe I forgot to do something that I did then.

Any funnies / tricks regarding this configuration?


Thanks for your help.

I experianced a dull moment this morning when doing the configs.

I identified my own configuration mistake.

The DCPS$TEST1_TST_REPORTS_SPOOL" = "TRUE" logical is very important otherwise the printjob can't be spooled.

I made a typing mistake when defining the above mentioned logical.


All is working fine now.

Sorry about his.
