The Net-Print client software on Windows needs to be updated prior to June 14, when Kerberos 4 will be turned off again. The software can be update in two ways:\n\n1. Install a patch that replaces the faulty component, solving the problem for all existing Net-Print queues:\nhttps://net-print.cit.cornell.edu/netprint-docs/installers/PatchWindowsLPR.msi\n(This patch can be installed quietly from the command line in Windows XP using "PatchWindowsLPR.msi /qn". In Windows 7, security protection may require \nadministrator intervention. The patch leaves an item "Patch WindowsLPR" in the install/uninstall programs control panel.)\n\n2. Run the updated installer to install one or more queues. The faulty component will be replaced, solving the problem for the new queues and any previously created Net-Print queues:\nhttps://net-print.cit.cornell.edu/netprint-docs/installers/Net-Print-2.8.exe The Net-Print client software on Windows needs to be updated prior to June 14, when Kerberos 4 will be turned off again.

The Identity Management team is currently investigating the root cause of NetPrint failures reported at campus locations. The failures appear to be related to the final shutdown of Kerberos 4 components. We will post updates and as they become available.

CIT has temporarily resolved the Net-Print issues by reinstating the older Kerberos 4. The problem was traced to an old component that had been overlooked in the Net-Print installer. An updated Net-Print installer is being built. A separate Net-Print installer is also being built that only replaces the old component -- using this installer will avoid the need to re-create printer queues.
