When I came in to check our PDC this morning (HP netserver 100 LS)the processor was being hogged by a process called hppropty.exe.

I am just wondering if anyone knows what this process does and what it controls (if anything).

thanks

Is the server running any HP management agents?

I've had a look on my PC and my servers here, and it's not on my servers but on my own PC. I think it's HP Jet Admin. Does this make sense to you? Do you have it installed?

As your server is called HP Netserver and the file starts with HP it's a good guess that it's something to do with HP.

thanks, had another look, and it looks like its the process that displays/controls the printer icons in the system tray as part of HP JetAdmin.

I was just wondering whether it was something we could do away with, but probably not!

Thanks.

What we think it does is, scan the network and keeps an eye out for jet admin devices. I think the idea is that to make starting up Jet Admin quicker.

Do you actually use Jet Admin / Do you have printers with Jet Admin cards?

I would suggest removing it (it's started up in the registry) and then testing to see if Jet Admin works or not.

Where I work we use Jet Admin cards in all the printers and then these are connected to the network which are the setup using our Novell Tree.
