This group is not required.
Refer to the minimal INI file to see the minimum requirements to configure Comet.
The SPOOLERS group contains information about the configured print spoolers. The group contains one segment title:
Spool = SP1,FS1\SYS:\COMET\QSPOOL\; spool on primary file server
Spool = SP2,FS2\SYS:\COMET\QSPOOL\; spool on secondary file server
Spool = SP3,C:\COMET\QSPOOL\; spool on local hard disc
Spool = SP4,D:\COMET\RAM\; spool on local RAM disc
Spool = SP5,\\SERVER\SYS\COMET\QSPOOL\; UNC path example (see Directories)
Spool = SP6,SERVER\SYS:\COMET\QSPOOL Network type "S" example
Spool = SPL,L:\COMET\QSPOOL; Network type "N" example
This segment title has two parameters. They are:
Enter the spool device name in the form:
SPx (where x can be a number from 1 through 9), or
Sxx (where xx can be any alphanumeric characters)
Enter the full DOS path where the spool files are to be created. The DOS path must be a valid Comet directory path that contains the QDIR files. The path can contain up to 60 characters.
The path should always end with the “\|” character. However, if you don’t include this character, SYSGEN will add one when the INI file is processed.
Spool files should not be created on directories that contains standard Comet release files, including the following directories:
You must run the QSPOOL utility initially of any print spooler that has been just created or it's DOS path has been changed. This is a mandatory step in order for Comet to build it's own working files. To initialize a new or changed spooler, do the following:
