Add the /NOSRS switch to the load statement of the server's Autoexec.ncf file to make this change persistent.
Note: The /NOSRS workaround cannot be used if Public Access
printers are in use. Public Access printers are rarely used by
Novell customers. Public
Access printers are highly discouraged.
Note: During the NetWare 6.5 SP2 time frame, SLP caused these
same symptoms. See the note below if your server is running

The /nosrs switch prevents the Manager from registering with the Broker's Service Registry Service. This will prevent Public Access printers from advertising themselves to the broker and subsequently to the SLPDA. The net result is that public access printers will be unaccessible on the network. However, if Public Access Printers are not in use, the net result is that would-be SLP traffic is reduced.
