First the basics:

Netware 6 sp3 with post sp3 patch
292 iprint printers
Hp gateway and Lexmark gateway(98% lexmark printers)

Server recently began abending for multiple reasons but more recently
the HP Gateway nlm. and the printer agents stop communicating and the
console locks up. After reboot it takes some time for all the printer

agents to come back up if at all. We have been making many
changes but are always able to ping the printers from the server.
Woulsd a
sudden drop and restore of connectivity on a seperate segment cause
any of
these issues? Has anyone seen anything like this. Any info would be
