The following error message appears:

ESF427  FCB IMAGE FC01 NOT FOUND                                                                                                       

However, sending this same file to another node it is printed with no error messages

Environment

Release : 14.0

Component : CA Spool

Resolution

Two possible reasons:

1) The second NODE has the keywords FCB=existing-fcb,USEFCB=PRINTER 

2) The second NODE has the keyword TRANSFRM and the file is being transformed. 
Transformed files have assigned the FCB=ASIS so the original FCB is not used
