Updating through the channel results in the iprint.ini being overwritten.
The iprint.ini file appears to have lost its settings.


A fix has been created to resolve this issue for future iPrint Server rpms. In the meantime follow the steps below to resolve the issue.
  1. Change directory to /var/opt/novell/iprint/htdocs/
    #cd /var/opt/novell/iprint/htdocs/
  2. Check to see if a back up the iprint.ini exists.
    # ls -l iprint*

    If there is a back it will have an extension of either .rpmsave or .rpmnew.  If there is no backup skip the rest of the steps and manually reenter the values into the current iprint.ini file.
  3. Rename the current iprint.ini file.
    #mv iprint.ini iprint.old
  4. Rename the backup iprint.ini file to the original name
    #mv iprint.ini.rpmsave iprint.ini
  5. Restart Apache
    #rcapache2 restart

The original settings should now be in place.
