Troubleshoot: Control Center producing the error: ‘Fatal error: portx spool=connector (port/printserver)’

Explanation: You are probably trying to create a new output connector in the Platform and you are using the connector type Spool and you are encountering this error. This is because you have not entered % into the To property – see Figure 1

  3. From the Selected layer dropdown select Production (Physical)
