[SOLVED] Solaris 6 prints multiple copies of 1 job
SOLTUION: Get a new version of Solaris for crying out loud! :-) Honestly, that was the solution in this case. Solaris 6 is just too outdated for modern print/copy/fax stations.
A Solaris 6 workstation issues the command to print a single document 1 time.
Job goes to a UNIX print server, then to a networked printer nearby.
The printer was switched out about a month ago, but the user hasn't made any config/environment changes to the workstation.
Both the UNIX print server and printer appear to be listed correctly in /etc/printers.conf, and both resolve properly.
When you submit a print job, regardless of format or size, it prints 60+ copies of it.
Tried restarting the print service, rebooting the workstation, to no avail.
Any ideas (aside of re-imaging an 11+ year old system)?
The print command being used:
lpr -P <defaultprinter> <filename>
