waiting in host spooler error

Hello Friends,

I recieved a request for printer setup with the below details.

O/P Device name uadu001 and uadu001a both pointing to the same printer.

Trays :

- Tray 2, 4 and 5 will contain A4 paper.

- Tray 3 will contain A3 paper.

Printer server : DELUADUTCGT01 (10.187.13.173)

Print queue : DELUADUTC30877

Printer Model : HP Color Laserjet CM 6040 MFP

Printer driver installed on the server : HP Color Laserjet CM 6040 MFP PCL6

Can you please check that on printer : uadu001

- Tray 2 - A4 - Checked

- Tray 3 - A3 - Unchecked

- Tray 4 - A4 - Unchecked

- Tray 5 - A4 - Unchecked

Can you please check that for uadu001

- Tray 2 - A4 - Unchecked

- Tray 3 - A3 - Unchecked

- Tray 4 - A4 - Checked

- Tray 5 - A4 - Checked

Based on the requirements i have defined this O/p devices pointing to same printer. We are using ACCESS METHOD "C", But when the user tries to print he recieves an message as *Processing* in sp01( spool request) and if i try to check the O/p request i gives an error saying

WAITING IN HOST SPOOLER (x) where x is a numeric and it gets incremented every time we test to print.

Please advice on what needs to be checked here to fix the issue.

    How is the printer defined in SPAD? Is it defined like

    <servername>\<printername>
