ProcedureHow to Resume Printing After a Printer Fault

  1. Look for a message about a printer fault and try to correct the fault if there is one.

    Depending on how printer fault alerts have been specified, messages might be sent to root by email or written to a terminal on which root is logged in.

  2. Re-enable the printer.

    # enable printer-name 

    If a request was blocked by a printer fault, this command will force a retry. If this command does not work, continue with other procedures in this section.
