Gail,

I certainly suggested that if the HR MIB model for printers ends up
conflicting with what we believe is the *right* model for handling
certain conditions, then yes, we should consider "deprecating" our
association with the HR MIB status variables.

However, if you agree that the values I proposed for the HR MIB variables
(below) are correct, then for the "critical toner low" condition, there
is no conflict. Again, assuming the values I proposed are correct.

Someone had previously illustrated a scenario in which the Alert Table
entry would be in conflict with the previously published set of related
HR MIB values. What was that scenario?

Jay,

You always catch me when I am being unclear. Would you please stop that? :)

Yes, I am speaking of the toner low condition that causes the printer to
temporarily pause.
