Is there an "auto enable" feature for printers on IBM AIX?
Posted on 2007-03-21
I have an IBM AIX machine. We have about 100 network printers hooked up to it. Occasionally one will become disabled for various reasons. Most of the printers are at remote offices and if the data line goes down for a while and comes back up, sometimes the printer will be disabled. There is nothing wrong with it and you just have to enable it for it to start working again.
I am either needing to find out if there is a way to do a "auto enable" of a printer after a certain amount of time or I need a cron script that will look for all disabled printers and try to enable them.
