Two days ago my iPrint server stopped printing. The print manager was no longer running.
When I started it with:
I would see:
WARNING A child process has gone or the iPrint Manager has just experienced a fatal error. It will be restarted by its monitor process.
That was repeated several times over a few minutes in /var/opt/novell/log/iprint
until I got:
FATAL A child process has gone or the iPrint Manager has had a fatal error and has been auto-restarted 5 times within the last hour. There appears to be a repetitive problem occurring. The iPrint Manager is exiting.
We are running Equitrac for print accounting, it uses the
accounting load string, when I removed this from all printers the print manager will stay up. However there are several printers which do not show in /ipp but still exist in eDir. When I try to open them in iManager I get this error:
Error Request (CLIENT_ERROR) - bad status code (0x406)
IPP Error: 0x406
The remaining printers work fine unless I put in the accounting load string. I am able to create a new printer and it works as long as I do not add the account load string. Some other errors along the way indicated LUM/namcd/LDAP errors due to an expired certificate, I believe I have that resolved but this issue with the printers remains.
I have been unable to determine why some printers work and others don't. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
