SCO Unix Openserver 5.0.4 print service problem

By glmb ·
Every time I boot up my SCO Unix Openserver 5.0.4 it disables the print service by itself denying any printing.I have to go to the Print Manager/System and check "Local Print Service Enabled" to enable the print service everytime after a reboot or start up.

When I do a lpstat -t at the command prompt the following message displays:
UX:lpstat: ERROR: The LP print service isnt running or can't be reached.
TO FIX: Your request can't be completely handled without the LP print service. If this problem continues get help from your system administrator.

I have tried installing a new stallion card, uninstalled the controller driver and installed it again but cannot solve this problem.Please someone help with some pointers and suggestions.

Are you running the lpstat command as the 'root' user?

PROBLEM: After installing Support Level Supplement (SLS) OSS497B, the Core
OS Supplement for SCO OpenServer 5.0.5, regular users get the
following error message when running the lpstat(C) command:

UX:lpstat: ERROR: The LP print service isn't running or can't be
reached.
TO FIX: Your request can't be completely handled
without the LP print service. If this
problem continues, get help from your
system administrator.
scheduler is not running
no system default destination

A privileged user can run the same command and get the expected
response.
