I am using AIX 5.
Just swapped over an HP printer.
The old printer was on a JetDirect box. The new printer connects directly to the network. Using the same IP address to print to, so the only alteration I made was to edit the etc/qconfig file to alter the port setting from 9103 to 9100. I can... (2 Replies)

Sometimes i need to clear all the jobs of a print queue and it is really annoying to cancel one by one.
Is there a way to cancel all print jobs for a specific print queue with a single command instead of cancelling them one by one?
My AIX system is 5.3

We have a problem with remote printers installed on our server.
Consistently, the printer status is ready but the impressions of the queue are waiting therefore blocked. To unblock the situation, we must launch stopsrc qdaemon-s-s and startsrc qdaemon to reactivate the queue.
Thank you... (2 Replies)

We have a 3rd party print queue installed on HP-UX 11.11 that interfaces with a binary. Basically we use the lp command to send reports to the print queue, which then interfaces with a binary to capture those reports into a reporting warehouse.
The problem lies in the way that HP uses a link to... (6 Replies)

lpmove(1M) System Administration Commands lpmove(1M)
lpmove - move print requests
lpmove [request-ID] destination
lpmove destination1 destination2
The lpmove command moves print requests queued by lp(1) or lpr(1B) between destinations.
The first form of lpmove moves specific print requests (request-ID) to a specific destination.
The second form of the lpmove command moves all print requests from one destination (destination1) to another (destination2). This form of
lpmove also rejects new print requests for destination1.
lpmove moves individual requests or entire queues only between local printers or between remote printers, not between a local and a remote
printer. You can move only requests that were not previously transferred to the server.
When moving requests, lpmove does not check the acceptance status of the destination to which the print requests are being moved (see
accept(1M)). lpmove does not move requests that have options (for example, content type or requiring a special form) that cannot be handled
by the new destination.
The following operands are supported:
request-ID The specific print request to be moved. Specify request-ID as the identifier associated with a print request as reported by
lpstat. See lpstat(1).
destination The name of the printer or class of printers (see lpadmin(1M)) to which lpmove moves a specified print request. Specify
destination using atomic, POSIX-style (server:destination) syntax.
destination1 The name of the destination from which lpmove moves all print requests. Specify destination using atomic, POSIX-style
destination2 The name of the destination to which lpmove moves all print requests. Specify destination using atomic, POSIX-style
See printers.conf(4) for information regarding the naming conventions for atomic names and standards(5) for information regarding POSIX.
The following exit values are returned:
0 Successful completion.
non-zero An error occurred.
/var/spool/print/* LP print queue.
