APAR Error Description / Circumvention

-------------------------------------------------
*LAN 3812 SNMP print writers fail as soon as they are started,
with MSGCPD337A and MSGCPF3473 in the writer's joblog.

A communication trace shows that no UDP packet is sent to the
printer's SNMP port, and IBM i ends the connection it had
successful established to port 9100.

CORRECTION FOR APAR 'SE62113' :
-------------------------------
The driver program was calling snmpGetnext() with a PDU type
that is only valid for snmpGet().  The driver has always done
this, but until recently the error was tolerated by SNMP.

CIRCUMVENTION FOR APAR 'SE62113' :
----------------------------------
None.

DESCRIPTION OF PROBLEM FIXED FOR APAR 'SE60357' :
-------------------------------------------------
A third-party application is generating *USERASCII spooled files
that are printed to a Zebra label printer using a *LAN 3812 SNMP
printer device description. These spooled files print
successfully, but occasionally the writer will fail with
MSGCPF33D6 "Buffer -1 not available" and MSGCPF3473 "Writer
&3/QSPLJOB/&1 did not end normally".

CORRECTION FOR APAR 'SE60357' :
-------------------------------
The SNMP printer driver has been changed to not end the writer
if it gets a CPF33D6 exception when reading a spooled file.  The
spooled file will be held, and the writer will proceed to the
next available file.

CIRCUMVENTION FOR APAR 'SE60357' :
----------------------------------
None.
