$sndjbc and FNF No Such File errors?

» close window

The Question is:

I am trying to print normal txt file through a openvms (alpha) C prog using
 SYS$SNDJBCW system service.
I have TCPIP print que set on the node. The job gets printed successfully on
 the remote node.
But the problem is when i say "sh que <que_name>/full" i get errors for each of
 the job that was
completed successfully.
The eaxct error maessage that i get is
Printer queue <que_name>, idle, on <node_name>::"IP_addr:port",
mounted form VAR_1 (stock=DEFAULT)
<TCP/IP-telnet printer on <ip_addr:port_num>
Entry Jobname Username Blocks Status
6996 <file_name>
<user_name> 1 Retained on error
%PSM-E-OPENIN, error opening !AS as input
-RMS-E-FNF, file not found
-SYSTEM-W-NOSUCHFILE, no such file
Completed 18-DEC-2003 08:24:24.97 on queue <que_name>
when i tried finding the reason for this error it says the file you are trying
 to print is not on the same node of the vms cluster. But that really is not
 the case.....
What could be the reason and how do i fix up this???

The Answer is :

  Please ensure that the filename chosen for the file is accessable
  to the print symbiont.  This includes ensuring that any logical
  name(s) used to reference the file being available in a shared
  logical name table (so that the print symbiont has access to the
  files), and ensure the file is accessable to the print symbiont,
  and ensuring that the file continues to exist until after the
  print symbiont requires access to it.
  Please contact the HP services organization for assistance in
  troubleshooting your $sndjbc call -- expect to be asked details of
  the error message and of the specific source code involved, and
  expect to be asked for a reproducer.
  Examples of calling $sndjbc are available in the OpenVMS manuals
  and in the support database.  (For access to the support database
  on the web, please see the AskQ pointers -- the Natural Language
  Search tool -- in the OpenVMS FAQ.)
