I asked:
> From time to time users on machine osi (SunOs 4.1.3) get the error
> message "lpq printer/tcp unknown service" when using the lpq
> command.

I got several responses and the result was that I have to check for
blank lines in /etc/services on our NIS master delete them and
then rebuild the maps.

I found one blank line in my services source file for the
corresponding NIS map which I deleted from the file.

Thanks to all who responded:
