When the connection to the MVS system host fails
If you experience connection problems with the MVS host after having submitted a job through AFP Upload and Print, how to make sure that the job prints depends upon whether InfoPrint Manager detected the loss of connectivity.
If InfoPrint Manager detected the lost connection, the PSF Upload TCP/IP logical destination
becomes red and the job goes into the
PENDING state. Once you have re-established connectivity to the MVS host program, re-enable
the PSF Upload TCP/IP destination. Then InfoPrint Manager will restart the job and
If InfoPrint Manager does not detect the lost connection, the job remains in the
PENDING state, while the printer goes into a
needs-key-operator state. To resolve this condition and print your job, you must regain connectivity
to the MVS host program, cancel the job in the
PENDING state, and then resubmit the job to the PSF Upload TCP/IP actual destination.
