Re: getting issue wth hp ux printer

The problem:

lp: destination "FIN_ZONIK" non-existent

is that someone has removed the definition of this printer in the HP-UX spooling system.

 

For a list of all the currently defined printers:

 

# lpstat -v

 Or better yet,

# lpstat -v | grep FIN_ZONIK

 If nothing comes back from grep, you'll need to add the printer to the spooler.

Re: getting issue wth hp ux printer

What does this command show?

# lpstat -pFIN_ZONIK

am getting this

 

exap02:/>lpstat -p FIN_ZONIK
lpstat: "FIN_ZONIK" not a request id or a destination

OK, since it says it doesn't exist (even though lpstat -v seems to show something), try adding the printer back into the spooler again.

>>lpstat -p FIN_ZONIK

 

No spaces are allowed between -p and name.

exap02:/>lpstat -pFIN_ZONIK
lpstat: printer "FIN_ZONIK" non-existent

 

all printers have same issue.around 50+ printers suddenly stopped print.

 

and i can see the printer config on sam under printers and pollers
