printers

In most cases, the printers map is created from the /etc/printers.conf file. A typical line looks like this:

destination_name key=value[,key=value,...] # comment

For example:

buildx:paddr=buildx.acme.com,105004,1,sys,lp,buildxspl,1:
printer3:bsdaddr=server,ps_printer # in copy room

If you create a printers map in Active Directory, you must include the key as part of the value. For example:

  • Key: printer3
  • Value: printer name followed by key and value pairs for the printer properties:
    printer3:bsdaddr=server,ps_printer
  • Comment: in copy room

This map is only applicable for Solaris.
