Novell iPrint for Linux Open Enterprise Server Support Pack 2
iManger iPrint Plugin
Within iManager , the Printer Agent's Pause Output and Pause Input button does not change to Resume
Output or Resume Input when clicked.
Administrators can pause the input and output of a Printer Agent
using iManager, but can't change the status to resume.
Apply Support Pack 3 for OES on Linux. At the time of this
writing (08JUN2006), SP3 has not been released yet. Until SP3
is released, implement the workaround listed below.
Resume the Input or Output using the PsmStatus tool:
1. Go to https://[ip_or_dns_of_iprint_server]/PsmStatus
2. Authenticate with the eDirectory
username and password (username's CN)
3. Click on the paused Printer
4. Click on the top Drop Down list
(the default selection is Shutdown Printer) and
Resume Output or Resume Input
5. Click Apply
If the buttons have been clicked too many times within iManager,
the printer agent may be in an error state. Using the same
drop-down selection from the PsmStatus tool, Shutdown the Printer
Agent and Start it up again.
When clicking the Pause Output button, the text on the button
should change to Resume Output. For Printer Agents hosted on
NetWare, this consistently works. For Printer Agents hosted
Linux, this works for some Printer Agents, and not for
others. The cause of the problem has not yet been determined.
