My problem is that I need to change the print server for all the printers on about 50 HP workstations. The easiest way to do that is to send modified configuration files to all users. Could you give me the way to do it manually ?
Thanks

I have no way to test this...and I'm about to leave for vacation so I won't be around to help debug it...but here goes...
Code:
#! /usr/bin/ksh
HOST=printserver
REALPRINT=lp
PRINT=lp

/usr/lib/lpshut
/usr/lib/lpadmin -x$PRINT
/usr/lib/lpadmin -p$PRINT -mrmodel -v/dev/null -ocmrcmodel \
  -osmrsmodel -orm$HOST -orp$REALPRINT -ob3
#  If this is to be the default printer:
/usr/lib/lpadmin -d$PRINT
/usr/lib/lpsched
enable $PRINT
/usr/lib/accept $PRINT
exit 0

And don't put any spaces in by changing, say, "-p$PRINT" to "-p $PRINT" because it confuses lpadmin.
