disable Solaris print banner

Hello Expert,

we have a solaris 9 "print server" and serveral solaris 10 client servers that have Oracle application which needs to print Documents. I would like to disable the banner page when printing from oracle application. where can I make the change permanently?

1)Do I edit the /etc/lp/interfaces/printername file on the solaris 9 "print server? same path for solaris 10?

2)edit the same file from the solaris 10 client server that's housing the oracle app. it's printing from the application, not from command line.

3) use command line from the client server and run this command:
lpadmin -p printername -o banner=never

Thanks in advance for your help.

2 Solutions
You do 1) and 3)
In 1) you look for line 'nobanner=no' and change it to 'nobanner=yes'.
In 3) you run lpadmin -p printername -o banner=never
How are you configuring or adding new printers?
You can use the lpadmin with "-o nobanner" option to disable the banner.
 or run the GUI tool to disable the banner.

or edit the /etc/lp/interfaces/printername file
Change the line that reads
'nobanner="no"' to 'nobanner="yes"'.

The enduser can use
lp command with "-o nobanner " option
