Print Jobs Submitted from Solaris System to Windows 2008 Print Server Print Correctly but Produce an Error on the Windows 2008 Print Server (Doc ID 1541371.1)

Last updated on OCTOBER 29, 2016

Applies to:

Solaris Operating System - Version 8.0 to 10 1/13 U11 [Release 8.0 to 10.0]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Submitting a print job from Solaris system to a remote Windows 2008 print server prints the job successfully, but generates an error on the Windows 2008 print server:


The Line Printer Daemon (LPD) service received a print job from root in an unsupported print format.
This can occur if the printer driver on the client is configured to use a print data type that is unsupported by this printer.
The document may not print correctly as a result.


 There were changes made to default print queue creations beginning with SunOS 5.10: lp patch 145798-05.  This patch is now obsoleted and the fix is now in kernel patch 144500-19.
