Printer disabled by HP-UX

The queue for a printer declared on an HP workstation has been automatically disabled (due to error 1 according to lpstat).
The command "enable" for that queue has solved the problem. I would like to know in which log file I can find more details about the error.
If memory serves, that printer had been installed with SAM as a remote printer, without error logging option (SAM default). Does that mean that I can't get any information about the error? Even on the printer server?

TIA, Jerome

Hi,
The logs for lp are in /var/adm/lp/.
look at log and lpd.log

Good luck

Re: Printer disabled by HP-UX

The logs won't tell you anything. I have seen many 'automatic disablements.' They are caused when the submission to a remote printer via rlp returns a non-zero exit status. Usually, they are an indication the remote printer (if Jetdirect or its ilk) was reset while printing the job.
