Cannot setup a printer queue

So I've got this asc file that someone sent me for setting up a Zebra printer on AIX.

When I use smit or the command line I get this error when I try to setup the printer up:

File /usr/lib/lpd/pio/predef/master does not exist.

The master file is there. This only happens when I setup a queue using this asc file.

Any ideas?

Here's how I'm setting the queue up:

Smit -> Print Spooling -> AIX Print Spooling > Add a Print Queue -> hpJetDirect -> Other -> zebra140_rel140 -> 2 Do NOT make this system a BOOTP/TFTP server -> [name the queue], [hostname], [9100] {ENTER}

That's when I get the error message.
