Hi.

We are moving from Solaris 9,10  to AIX 6.1, TL6 . We are using hpnpl (which is very old version) in Solaris for printer management. Can someone point out for any best guide or link on how AIX printer management works and how can we switch from Solaris to AIX print spoolers. Also, if you have any best AIX reference guide that would be very helpful.

Please advice.

Thanks in advance.

wmp,

Thanks for the nice explanation.

our setup is like whenever we install any solaris server, we install jetadmin on it and we have one master spool server from where we run cron job everday which will push printers to all other solaris servers and later to solaris zones. we have SAP application (on solaris servers)which configures the printers in SAP GUI (after we configure in OS) and having different solaris servers as a spool server. I want to know if i can install jetadmin on AIX and then push the printers from master solaris spool server to AIX server.
