Directory and Resource Administrator 7.0
Directory and Resource Administrator 7.0 SP1
Print job status is incorrectly displayed as 'Printing' in Directory and Resource Administrator (DRA) 32-bit GUI and Web Console.
Actual status of print job (in native tools) is 'Printing - Printer Busy or Error'.
DRA reports status of print job incorrectly when using LPR printing.
This is a known user interface (UI) issue where DRA is not appending the additional status information (StatusStr) to the display. This issue is most commonly seen when using LPR printing.
Example: If the actual status of a print job is 'Printing Spooling', DRA will display the status as 'Printing'. The additional status text after 'Printing' is available using the StatusStr hint. In this example, StatusStr contains the value 'Spooling'; so, the correct behavior should be to display the 'Printing' status and if StatusStr is also set, then append "- " and StatusStr.
This is corrected in DRA 7.5 and later. To resolve this issue upgrade to the latest version of DRA.
