Trouble with lpsched on HP-UX 11.31

Hi,

This is an fresh install of HP-UX 11.31.0803 with QPKAPP B.11.31.0809.326 installed.

The trouble is I can't start the lp scheduler:

root@mls-test-01 # lpsched -v
lpsched: scheduler could not be started

Nothing is created in /var/adm/lp
root@mls-test-01 # ls -l /var/adm/lp
total 0


Permissions:
root@mls-test-01 # ls -ld /var/spool/lp
drwxr-xr-x 4 lp bin 8192 jún 16 21:23 /var/spool/lp/

root@mls-test-01 # ls -ld /var/adm/lp
drwxr-xr-x 2 lp bin 96 jún 16 19:47 /var/adm/lp/

root@mls-test-01 # ls -ld /usr/lib/lp
drwxr-xr-x 7 lp bin 96 jún 16 19:46 /usr/lib/lp/


Nothing relevant is posted in syslog nor anywhere I can find.

I've tried removing the PrintMgr depot and reinstalled it. Tried to start the lpsched through smh / sam, to no avail, never starts up.

Any ideas?

Hello.

Did you check if the SCHEDLOCK file excists?
if so, remove it.
rm SCHEDLOCK

do a ps -fe and look for any lpsched procs and kill them

Any error messages during installation?

Regards.

I did not see any errors when installing, and no lpsched processes are running.

Hello.

What about the rc.log?, anything there?

Hi,

Unfortunately the permissions seem to be in order on
everything, so that doesn't seem to be the issue.

You checked /usr/sbin/lpsched?

>lpsched: scheduler could not be started

This error occurs when trying demonize lpsched when doing an initial read on the pipe. Or getting bad data from the pipe in the parent from the child.

Are you running out of processes?
It might be useful running tusc on lpsched(1m).
