      Dear Nicholas,

      Thank you. Your blog helped me to find a conclusion to my issue.

      Regards,

      we have had an issue, the DNS-resolution (on our SAP application server) did not work (due to an DNS-problem) – so all printers connected to that printserver did not work,

      on application server the ping to the printserver failed.

      in spool output workers was shown “query problem” ,

      ======

      is there any function or transactioncode in SAP,   (in SPAD or . . . ) 

      to reset or to check all connections to all failed printers (after the DNS issue had been fixed)

      or is it a to do manually for every spool or printer ?

      regards

      Christoph
