I need to configure a Xerox N32 printer as the default printer for all workstations on a network running Solaris 2.6 using NIS (NOT NIS+!). How do I define the new print queue on my NIS server for Solaris 2.6 before running the Makefile??

You'd define the print queue on the print server in the normal manner and then make that queue available to the clients via the NIS maps.

The subject is covered in the Solaris Answerbook in the "System Administration Guide Volume II".

A quickee set of instructions for making the queue available via NIS taken from Answerbook is:

"This example creates a printers.conf entry for the printer luna, connected to the print server, saturn. The make command pushes the printers.conf map."

# lpset -a bsdaddr=saturn,luna,Solaris -a description=Room 1954 ps" luna
# make -f /var/yp/makefile -f /usr/lib/print/Makefile.yp printers.conf
