Smit fastpath gives error: 1800-109.


aix 4.1.2/error 1800-106 an error occurred/ tried to add a virtual printer


ENV:    4.1.2

DESC:   Just started getting the error: 1800-106: an error      
        They went through smit and were trying to add a queue
        when this error appears. It appears at the point where
        it should be asking whether the queue is remote,

ACT:    They do already have queues set up.
        Can't think of any system changes that have gone on
        between when the queues were last set up and now.

        The error occurs right after the select the option to
        add a queue.

        lpstat does not return the error.

        Change/show of the queues seems to work as does

smit -v -ltest.log
   add a print queue
   Now when error occurs exit and look at test.log.

smit log shows an error in this command:
       Doing following Command_to_List:
>/usr/lib/lpd/pio/etc/piolsvp -A 2>/dev/null

Gives error:   18-050 exit status:

My system does this:

    Output from Command_to_List follows:
  local                Printer Attached to Local Host
  remote               Printer Attached to Remote Host
