I am migrating my Output Server from an old Windows box to a new one and am having issues with the new ports. I have 6 instances installed and the last one seems OK, but all the others get errors when any output is sent to them, even a Windows Test print. I have them all setup the same, with the port format used \\.\pipe\jetform\server5
When i installed the software, i installed all 6 instances then went through and added the 6 local printer ports - it seemed to configure them OK this first time.
My testing was then done on the 6th and last instance and went fine.
When i tried to test the other instances, I found all jobs just errored out on the printer queue.
If I connected one of these printers to the 6th port, it worked fine.
I deleted one of the local ports that was not working and tried to re-add it. I then got the message "The system cannot find the file specified"
I tried adding the port through the registry - it added, but would not print still.
I then noted that in Central output Server Control, when i tried to Shutdown Central and start one of them, I got the error "Unable to connect to named pipe '\\.\pipe\jetform\server5.ctr'"
I am using a domain account that is configured to run the Adobe services, it is a Domain Admin with all the required rights
I have modified the Local Security policy to allow users to add printer drivers.
And i have now run out of ideas ! Anyone got any ??
This was traced back to one of the ini files still having a folder name from the last instance installed (i.e. SERVER6).
So it is fixed
Would you be able to tell me which ini files this was regarding?
Running into the same issue.
Removed a port and now get same error.
I went to the control directory and removed the line containing the server# but still unable.
I ran into this a couple months ago and figured it out but for some reason i cant think of the path for the ini to change
