ProcedureHow to Free Print Requests From a Print Client That Are Backed Up in the Print Server Queue

  1. On the print server, stop further queuing of print requests from any print client to the print server.

    # reject printer-name 
  2. Display the lpsched log file.

    # more /var/lp/logs/lpsched

    The information displayed might help you pinpoint what is preventing the print requests from the print client to the print server from being printed.

  3. After you fix the problem, allow new print requests to be queued.

    # accept printer-name
  4. If necessary, re-enable the printer on the print server.

    # enable printer-name
