[cups] Problem with re-printing large print job

please take a look at the error log of cupsd.

Maybe it is not a problem of cupsd. On some backends/client there is a printout duration defined (120sec).

Is a printjob not finished during this time, the printout and the queue is stopped. This is a normal UNIX behavior.

Every "good" administrator, creates a enable queue script which enables the queue and the printing starts from the beginning.

This loop is working until the papertray is empty :-(

Subject: [cups] Problem with re-printing large print job

I have CUPS 1.6.3 running on CentOS 7 and it happily prints out hundreds of print jobs per day.  This includes fairly large print jobs.  But on occasion, we get a large print job, which prints out partially, then reprints again repeatedly.  It will keep reprinting the job until it is cancelled.

This current 490 page job printed 332 pages, then 333 pages, then 351 pages, then 353 pages, until I placed it on hold.

Looking at the print job in the CUPS web interface, it indicates that there are 239 pages.

However, in the spool file d08069-001, it indicates there are 491 pages:

%%Pages: 491

Any idea why CUPS thinks rthere is only 239 pages in this print job, and why it keeps reprinting the job?
