lppchk result

Hi,

I experience an issue with printer queue configuration and when I tried to verify files of the printer and lpd installable software product, I get these messages:

#lppchk -c
lppchk: 0504-208 Size of /usr/lib/lpd/digest is 44634,
expected value was 44874.
lppchk: 0504-208 Size of /usr/lib/lpd/qstatus is 60220,
expected value was 60236.
lppchk: 0504-212 The checksum for file /usr/lib/lpd/rembak is 44075,
expected value is 49331.
lppchk: 0504-208 Size of /usr/lib/lpd/pio/etc/piodigest is 126236,
.....

There is a lot of lines related to /usr/lib/lpd only.

Have you any idea how to fix that?

Thanks,

Imad

Did you tried to figure out any broken filesets are present in your server.

if yes, then you have to uninstall the the broken filesets and need to reinstall.

Hi Faruk,

I suspected that something is broken. How can I reinstall it?
and which package to uninstall and reinstall? I'm a newbie in AIX.

Thanks,

Hi,

you should perform the lppchecks on the filesets themselves - search via
Code:
lslpp -L | grep printer

for the correct filesets

Kind regards

Hi,

When I try this command I got this result:

lslpp -l "bos.rte.printers*"
Fileset Level State Description
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Path: /usr/lib/objrepos
bos.rte.printers 5.3.10.0 COMMITTED Front End Printer Support
Path: /etc/objrepos
bos.rte.printers 5.3.9.0 COMMITTED Front End Printer Support



When I check in smitty, I get this result:
bos.rte.printers 5.3.10.0 C F Front End Printer Support


I think that something is wrong with version of bos.rte.printers.

I tried to reinstall it but I could not perfom it and I get this messages:

Command: failed stdout: yes stderr: no

geninstall -I "a -cNQqX -J" -F -Z -d ./ -f File 2>&1

Hi,

are you sure that you are trying to install a package 'bos.rte.printers 5.3.10.0.I' ?

I am sorry but I don't have a box with TL10 but generally it looks like the root part of your package installation failed while the fileset was upgraded why the /usr part was successful ...
