I am trying to use the logs provided with the lp print service to return what has happened to my print job. I need the files described as being under the /var/lp/logs directory created after a print is complete or can not complete. These logs however requests and lpNet are not present on my unix box or anyone elses around. Can you help, how to I turn them on, I am new to printer administartion.
I am running this from a solaris 2.6 ultra II on a network printer running through a file server. Can you help?

Create an entry in your printcap file for each printer with the following syntax:
:lf=/var/lp/logs/<logfilename>: and be sure you do NOT leave out the colons.  The file <logfilename> will be created in the /var/lp/logs/ directory however, the directory (/var/lp/logs/)MUST exist so create it before you start if it is not already there.
