Printer Agent: 'XXXXXXX', could not resolve host name ''

    Note: replace XXXXXX with printer agent name.

Additional Information

The iprntnw65sp8b-2 patch advertizes that this problem is resolved in the 24JUN2009 release of NDPSGW.NLM.  That release of NDPSGW.NLM will prevent the message from displaying every 60 seconds, but will not prevent the following message from displaying at Printer Agent load time. 
Printer Agent Handle: X, could not resolve host name ''
No Priner Address Resolved for 'XXXXXXXX'
The fix mentioned above will prevent any printer agent DNS resolve messages from displaying on the server console.
