Hi Guys,

Anyone know why this is happening?

OES/NW 6.5 SP6 and it has the iprntnw65sp6f patches already.
It hangs the printmanager and requires a hard reset of the server to

Seems to happen just after ndpsgw autoloads after ndpsm at some point.

Is the load order or positioning of the iprint/ndps nlms in autoexec a
I replaced the files again on general principles and commented them out.

After the server was running, I loaded them one at a time,

Started with load ndpsm.nlm smcprintmanager.st_marks

It gave me an error of
Error (327682) occurred while creating a Service Registry reference.

But it didn't abend and seems to be working,

load broker smcbroker.st_marks
loaded with no errors I could see.
load ndpsgw.nlm seemed to do nothing.
ndspgw seems to load numerous times, does this need to be done here or not?

Actual lines from autoexec.ncf are:
load ndpsm.nlm smcprintmanager.st_marks
load broker.nlm smcbroker.st_marks
load ndpsgw.nlm

Commenting them out stops the server abending, sometimes it's worse than
others and crashes,
mostly it records the abend, printmanager hangs solid and can't be

If you want the entire abend.log entry, sing out.

NDPS seems a little twitchy at best. We have some issues loading drivers
from the broker.
You install the driver, some load when you install the printer, others will
popup a message that there is no valid driver, what's wierder is that
sometimes if you hit the cancel or ok at the right moment, it will suddenly
decide to load the driver from the broker, other times you have to do it
