I am printing to a non-NDPS print queue on Netware 6.5 from a DOS application. The application prints customer cards of 21 lines each. When I send a large number of cards to the queue, the queue receives all the output and starts sending to the printer. When the printer reaches 380 cards (approx. 8,000 lines), the print queue clears out and the following message appears on the server console: "The print queue cannot be read".
At this point the queue cannot be accessed, even by shutting the print server and starting it up again. The only way to get it back is reboot the server. All output on the queue is then lost.
The number of lines sent is irrelevant, when it prints the @8K lines, the spool crashes.
Any advise is welcome.
