Multiple-queue print queue stoppage?

» close window

The Question is:

I have tcpip version 5.0a and am now getting problems with many print queues
 stopping all at once. Is there a maximum number of print queues? or a
 parameter setting that requires adjusting? Currently I have around 180 print
 queues and appear not to be abl
e to get them all working.

The Answer is :

  There is no particularly applicable maximum number of queues, this
  would appear to be a software or a configuration problem, or a
  resource restriction.
  Most IP components can or do provide logging capabilities, and the
  Telnet and lpr/lpd print symbionts are no exception to this.  Please
  enable the logging if required, and please then check the log files
  for relevent error messages.  There are sections on resolving lpd
  and telnetsym problems included within the respective chapters of
  the TCP/IP Services Management manual, part of the IP documentation.
  ECO kits and subsequent product releases are available for TCP/IP
  Services, and ECO kits and subsequent product releases are also
  available for OpenVMS Alpha.  Please seriously consider moving to
  more current releases, and please also apply the mandatory ECO kits
  for the particular product release in use.  (The OpenVMS Wizard would
  strongly encourage upgrading to current releases, even if the logging
  capabilities specifically identify a particular configuration problem.)
  If the problem persists, please contact the support center.  Expect
  to be asked for relevent contents of the log files, for details of
  the queue configuration, details of the system configuration and
  system parameters, and for the particular ECO kits that have been
  applied to the configuration.
