OpenSolaris 2009.06 - man page for disable (opensolaris section 1)

enable(1)				  User Commands 				enable(1)

       enable, disable - enable/disable LP printers

       /usr/bin/enable printer...

       /usr/bin/disable [-c | -W] [-r [reason]] printer...

       The enable command activates printers, enabling them to print requests submitted by the lp
       command. enable must be run on the printer server.

       The disable command deactivates printers, disabling them from printing requests	submitted
       by  the	lp  command.  By default, any requests that are currently printing on printer are
       reprinted in their entirety either on printer or another  member  of  the  same	class  of
       printers. The disable command must be run on the print server.

       Use lpstat -p to check the status of printers.

       Generally,  enable  and disable are run on the print server to control local print queues.
       Under some configurations, they can also be run on client systems when IPP is  being  used
       to communicate between client and server.

       The following options are supported for use with disable:

       -c	      Cancels  any  requests  that are currently printing on printer. This option
		      cannot be used with the -W option. If the printer is remote, the -c  option
		      is silently ignored.

       -W	      Waits  until  the  request  currently being printed is finished before dis-
		      abling printer. This option cannot be used  with	the  -c  option.  If  the
		      printer is remote, the -W option is silently ignored.

       -r [reason]    Assigns  a  reason for the disabling of the printer(s). This reason applies
		      to all printers specified. This reason is reported by  lpstat  -p.  Enclose
		      reason  in quotes if it contains blanks. The default reason is unknown rea-
		      son for the existing printer, and "new printer" for a printer added to  the
		      system but not yet enabled.

       The following operand is supported for both enable and disable:

       printer	  The name of the printer to be enabled or disabled. Specify printer using atomic
		  or URI-style (scheme://endpoint) names. See printers.conf(4) regarding the nam-
		  ing conventions for destinations.

       The following exit values are returned:

       0	   Successful completion.

       non-zero    An error occurred.

       /etc/printers.conf      System printer configuration database

       $HOME/.printers	       User-configurable printer database

       ou=printers	       LDAP version of /etc/printers.conf

       printers.conf.byname    NIS version of /etc/printers.conf

       printers.org_dir        NIS+ version of /etc/printers.conf

       See attributes(5) for descriptions of the following attributes:

       |      ATTRIBUTE TYPE	     |	    ATTRIBUTE VALUE	   |
       |Availability		     |SUNWlp-cmds		   |
       |Interface Stability	     |Obsolete			   |
       |CSI			     |Enabled			   |

       lp(1), lpstat(1), printers.conf(4), attributes(5)

       When  IPP is in use, the user is prompted for a passphsrase if the remote print service is
       configured to require authentication.
