We have recently upgraded our core switch to a Cisco 4006 from a Cisco 5505. Since the upgrade, some of our Hewlet Packard printers with JetDirect are getting "40 MIO error" errors. The JetDirect's are connecting to a Netware 4.11 server as their print server via IPX.
The switches that the users connect to have not changed at this time. The Netware server is in a rack with other servers connected to a Cisco 3524XL, and that switch is connected to the 4006 via a 100Mb Cat-5 Cable. We are planning to connect the server switch to the 4006 using fiber and Gigabit, but have not made that conversion yet.
Is there something that needs to be configured for IPX that can solve this problem? Or is it a port configuration on the switches that needs to be changed.
This error message means that the printer has lost its network connection to the print server (basically, it won't print). To get rid of this error, reset the printer.
Try " set port host" command on access ports connected to these printers, this will reduce the initial up time for these ports which could be the cause of loss of connectivity b/w IPX printer(client) and server. Note this command should _only_ be used on access ports.

interface we use the VLAN tag to demultiplex the VLANs. The switch needs

decision. To do this we require the switch to do...
