SAP Printing Issue on HP-UX


Hi All,

We have HP-UX as OS for our SAP system. We created a new system by copying our production system and applying the latest redo logs. Since this is the exact replica of out production system, but its machine name is different. As soon as we started testing this server, we found that no one is able to print from SAP anymore. We realised that we have to change the print servers as this is a different machine al together. SO we went ahead and chaged the print servers and pointed them to the current servers. After this , our output devies became activated , BUT WE ARE STILL NOT ABLE TO PRINT !!!!!!

I think it has something to do with defining the printer in HP-UX at OS level. The error message that we are getting for every spool request is -

Status: Incorrect (Error sending data)

Job status: Completed

Area: Data transfer

Error: Host spool error

Info: /usr/bin/lp: destination "nla_laser02" non-existent.

Please advice and help me out.
