Hi,

recently we have installed oes linux server sp2 and applied latest patch
for iprint server. Server is standalone - no cluster and only server in
tree. We have installed the patch trough rug (patch-11312) and we have
latest novell-iprint rpm.
IPP printing is working, but installing of iprint printer is trough
http://[server]/ipp is not. It ends with error

Error message : iPrint Printer - The printer experienced a temporary error.
Please retry the request later.

Error group : iPrint Server
Error code : 1285

There is no any zombie or defunct process.

We installed iprint printers directly through windows control panel and
manually install drivers. We tried printing through ipp server and worked
ok.Adding drivers to driver store through imanager works with no problems
(iManager version 2.5.20051102, iprint plugin version 2.5.5.20060626). When
we try to create driver printer profile the same error "iPrint Printer -
The printer experienced a temporary error" occured.

All I could find on the support.novell.com was TID 10099511 which suggested
some scripts for cluster enviroment and it was for oes linux sp1. I have
reviewed the scripts and as i can understand it is only change path to the
iprint resources in apache configuration for cluster enviroment. I have
checked the path to the iprint resources in apache configuration and it's ok.

Has anyone any suggestions how to resolve this issue or how to look more
deeply into the problem ?
