Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 500348
jobs not send to disabled queues on cups server
Last modified: 2013-03-19 12:08:57 EDT
Description of problem:
We send all jobs to cups (IPP) servers (scientific linux 5.3, cups-1.3.7).
If one queue on server is disabled for printing but enabled for spooling then if the first job from client will be send to server the local queue will also be disabled and the job remain in the local cups queue. Jobs would only be sent if the server queue is enabled. The local queue is then explicit to enable by root. In cups-1.3.10 is this behavior fixed.
Is this bug fixed in next cups version ?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. cupsdisable queue on server
2. send job from client
client queue ist also disabled (lpq)
job is spooled on server and waits for printing
bug fixed in cups-1.3.10
Please explain the problem you are seeing in more detail. How is the client configured? Are the client queues found using CUPS browsing or set explicitly? What is the client running? What is the server running? Are you using classes?
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for
inclusion in the current release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Because the affected component is not scheduled to be updated in the
current release, Red Hat is unfortunately unable to address this
request at this time. Red Hat invites you to ask your support
representative to propose this request, if appropriate and relevant,
in the next release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
RHEL-5.10 (the next RHEL-5 minor release) is going to be the first production phase 2  release of RHEL-5.
Since phase 2 we'll be addressing only security and critical issues.
