Direct Printout issue

Hi Gurus

I am not really sure to post this question in SD or ABAPer forum!!

in our SD side we create an sales order --> Delivery -->PGI --> Invoice. once saved invoice, the printout should comes out without going into spool, all was well untill we moved into cluster environment. Now we have 2 servers, one Application is on and other runs Database.

Now in times (not always) invoice printouts goes to spool and invoicing Clark had to goto spool and take printout. my question is

1. is spool part of database or application (which server it resides)?

2. how to direct prints to printer without going into spool and wasting time?

Thanking you in advance

    Hi Raj,

    Can you please check the SU01 transaction --> Tab Defaults --> Spool Control --> Print Immediately.

    Thanks & Regards,

    For your second question, go to tcode VV32 and set for your output message set these flags:

    For the first, I suggest to speak with a basis consultant, but you can check SAP Note 504952 - Composite note regarding spooling and printing

      Thank you Eduardo,

      Yes output message printer related flags are already ticked.

      our issue is when ever we run SAP on cluster environment (in times) our deliver notes goes to spools but in single server mode it prints directly.

      in our cluster environment, SAP application is running on all the nodes and database is running on only one node, in the same node application also runs.
