APPLIES TO

  • Microsoft SNA Server 4.0



This article was previously published under Q172470


SYMPTOMS

If a zero-length RU is encountered and Job Monitoring is enabled, any subsequent jobs sent to SNA Server Print Service will hang.

CAUSE

If Job Monitoring is turned on for a session, jobs are not fully closed down until the printer has notified SNA Server Print Service that the job has finished printing. Unfortunately, a zero-length job never starts printing, so it never finishes and the job is never properly closed.

STATUS

Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in SNA Server version 3.0 Service Pack 1 (SP1). This problem was corrected in the latest SNA Server version 3.0 U.S. Service Pack. For information on obtaining this Service Pack, query on the following word in the Microsoft Knowledge Base (without the spaces):

A request to start a new job is submitted from the host:

   DLC   --------------------------------------------------------------
   DLC   04160080->01020101 DLC DATA
   DLC                      DAF:E9 OAF:01 ODAI:off Normal

This request is then passed over FMI to the SNA Server Print Service:

   FMI   --------------------------------------------------------------
   FMI   01027102->10120600 FMIST CTRL BID   REQ
   FMI                      ACK required Msg key:8 FMHI BCI ECI RBI

There is no response from the SNA Server Print Service.

With the fix applied, the SNA Server Print Service will generate a message that the zero-length RU was printed successfully, thus giving it permission to close the session down. This will allow any subsequent jobs to then be printed.
