    ipp-listener keeps going into maintenance mode

    807567
      Hi,
      I have a Solaris 10 server configured to handle a few HP printers. It seems to run OK as long as things are
      printed locally. But when I use a client machine (also Solaris 10), often it throws the server ipp-listener into maintenance mode.
      The logs and svcs -xv are not much help here. Any ideas would be appreciated.
      vepicenter# svcs -xv
      svc:/application/print/ipp-listener:default (Internet Print Protocol Listening Service)
      State: maintenance since Wed Aug 12 15:41:23 2009
      Reason: Method failed.
      See: http://sun.com/msg/SMF-8000-8Q
      See: man -M /usr/share/man -s 4 mod_ipp
      See: /var/svc/log/application-print-ipp-listener:default.log
      Impact: This service is not running.

      On the client machines, lpstat -t says

      Unless the server ipp-listener is in maintenance mode.

      What am I missing?
      Thanks for any help.
