Issue/Introduction

To enable the new feature Online Printer Feature, the V14.0 installation guide states that NODE definitions from ESFPARM should be moved to ESFNODE. However, ESFNODE supports only a small subset of NODE Keywords supported in ESFPARM. Unsupported NODE keywords in the ESFNODE data set will prevent the printer from displaying in the PO display. Thus, unsupported are required to be removed before addition to ESFNODE, and these unsupported keywords then have to be compensated for in DEFNODE statements of ESFPARM. 

We have 100+ printers to convert. 

 

Does enablement of the Online Printer Feature truly required that NODEs be added to ESFNODE ? Can we enable this feature while retaining NODE definitions in ESFPARM, and expect al printers to be functional ?

Environment

Release : 14.0

Component : CA Spool

Resolution

All printers will be functional be them in the ESFNODE member or in the normal ESFPARM concatenation but only the nodes in the ESFNODE member will be shown in the PO panel.

Although moving the nodes to ESFNODE is not required, IF you want to see ALL printer nodes in the PO panel you must perform this movement. Only the printers moved to the ESFNODE member will be shown in the PO panel.
