There are two possible problems. The first is that the printer does not fully accept the HP8000 PCL data stream commands for changing drawers. The second is that the SCS/AFPDS conversion is not set to perform the host print transform to send the correct PCL commands to the printer. You will need to find a compatible driver and/or change the output queue, printer file to perform the host transform prior to writing to the printer. You might also check the iSeries support site for PTF's to fix the problem.
