Anecdotal evidence suggests that some jobs are actually crashing the 9050s, in that not only do they not print, but the front panel is rendered unresponsive. Do the printers do any useful logging in our environment? (Can they syslog, or can they only whine over SNMP? I guess the 9050s also have a log page on the web server, but it's unclear if anything gets logged there during a crash.
Would bumping the firmware be helpful? ajax, at least, claims to be running 08.130.4 (Nov '09), whereas 08.180.1 (Nov '10) is the most current version.
