Add Printer on HP-UX10.01

An existing Laser printer is being connected to HP-UX (running HP-UX10.01) machines A, and HP-UX machine (Machine B) access this printer remotely.  Now we want to add new (local) printer on Machine B.
When I type "lpadmin -plaserjet1 -v/dev/lp -mlaserjet", an error occurred: "lpadmin: can't open member file", while by typing "lpstat -t", it shows:

laserjet not accepting requests since Mar 19 14:30 -
        new destination
laserjet not accepting requests since Mar 19 14:31 -      
        new destination

Similar error messages occurred when I tried to use SAM to add a printer.

The result is now I even can't access to any printer on Machine B.

Please help.

There is a patch for this at 10.01. This release (10.01) is not
a recommended release to be running. Upgrade at least to 10.10
if not 10.20. The printing issues have been resolved in those
releases. Otherwise, get the patch from the HPUX ftp patch server.

Good luck!
