Print job confirmations
Posted on 2006-05-24
I setup ten network printers (HP LaserJet1320n) and a queue for each on a Win 2003 server. Each printer serves a different area of the warehouse. The printers print out picking lists for their assigned area as orders come in. All of this works great.
The concern is that the server could print an order, the printer caches it locally, then the power goes out. The server has already sent the print job so it deletes it from the queue but the printer got turned off before it printed everything it had (same deal if someone power cycled printer to clear a jam, etc.).
Is there some way for the printer to let the server know that the job is done and have the server wait for that confirmation to delete the job?
