Netware 5.0 and Jet Admin

By hcarlson ·
I am installing Netware 5.0 on a new Dell PowerEdge 4300 server. I can not get the HP jet admin cards in the printers to find the file server. I used Jet Admin 2.5 to set up the jet admin cards and rechecked all que names and print server names to make sure they are correct. The 4 jet admin cards worked fine on my old Compaq server using Novel 4.11. What am I doing wrong?

Netware 5.0 and Jet Admin

We had a few HP printers that stopped communicating after we upgraded to NW 5.1. We discovered that the JetDirect firmware was pretty old. Once we updated the firmware, they began working again.

You may also want to consider migrating to NDPS. It integrates JetAdmin functionality into NWAdmin and works well with HP devices. It also makes driver distribution much easier.

I have tried both ways as IPX/SPX and NDPS. One Jet direct is in a recently procured color printer. I would think it would have the latest Firmware.

I would try a newer version of Jetadmin, that is a pretty old version you are using

We also thought that since we had new printers we would have new Jetdirect firmware. But when we upgraded the firmware the printers started working. You might also see sometimes an error on the printer LCD panel indicating some kind of hardware error. The solution is to put the printer in its factory setting mode, then upgrade the firmware and then reconfigure the printer from Jetadmin. Good luck.

1. Try upgrading the firmware. Go to "http://www.hp.com/support/net_printing" for the instructions and latest version. You can also get a new version of JetAdmin from here.

2. If this doesn't work, try using the jetdirect cards along side pserver.nlm on the NetWare 5 server. If you are not sure about this, send me an e-mail!
