getting 1800-036 trying to change printer queue
Every time I go into SMIT and try to change/show print
queue characteristics I get ODM error 1800-036
Looked in /var/spool/lpd/pio/@local/smit - the files
were all 4096 bytes in size which is a clean slate - how
they should be before any queues are ever added to the
Did a "hostname" and found out your hostname was rs/6000-k
When you install AIX it tries to create a soft link from:
/var/spool/lpd/pio/\ -> /var/spool/lpd/pio/@local
With a "/" in the hostname this would try referring to a
non-existent subdirectory - and would be unable to create the
set the hostname
Changed the hostname to something without / in it.
ln -s /var/spool/lpd/pio/@local /var/spool/lpd/pio/\
Now removed and readded your print queue. The ODM files in
/var/spool/lpd/pio/@local/smit grew to indicate entries had
been added into them. You can now use smit chpq to alter
the charactertics of queues added after the above steps.
