This command shuts down all the jBASE printer daemons. This command requires Administrator privileges on Windows or root privileges on UNIX. The command is as:
After typing the command, the response may be as:
*****All spooler Daemons are already shut down*****
This means that there are no jspprint daemons running to shut down.
Alternatively, a list of queues with their PID numbers shown will be displayed, and the option to shut them down e.g.:
295 - NETWORK1 212 - LETTER1 261 - LABEL1 Do you wish to stop the above daemons? (Y/N): _
If return or type N the following message appears and the program will exit:
*** Aborted ***
If Y, then the program will try to tidy shut the processes down and then will sleep for 30 seconds to allow the daemons to shut themselves down e.g.:
Do you wish to stop the above daemons? (Y/N): Y Waiting for 30 Seconds to allow Daemons to shut down _
If this was successful then a message appears and the program will exit:
Waiting for 30 Seconds to allow Daemons to shut down All spooler Daemons have now shut down.
If this process was not successful then the remaining daemons will be displayed and you will be asked if you want to kill the daemons e.g.:
Waiting for 30 Seconds to allow Daemons to shut down. 261 - LABEL1 The above daemons have not shut down. Do you wish to kill them? (Y/N): _
If return or N then you will get the following message and the program will exit.
*** Aborted ***
If you type Y then the program will try to kill the processes. The program will tell you whether the kill was successful:
The above daemons have not shut down. Do you wish to kill them? (Y/N): Y Printers have been successfully shut down
Alternatively, if it is unsuccessful you will then get some type of error message followed by:
Kill was not successful errors occurred during shutdown
When the kill fails, the error message generated prior to the above should be reported to support so it can be investigated further
