Title: Sun Solaris Print Queue for QL Printers


Describes creation of a print queue in a Sun Solaris environment

Facts or Affected Items: 

QL Printers


Defining a print queue on a Sun Solaris Unix system. 

This command deletes the print queue named "zebra2": 

lpadmin -x zebra2 

This command creates a new print queue named "zebra2", where the QL printer network name is "zebra": 

lpadmin -p zebra2 -v /dev/null -m netstandard -o dest=zebra -o nobanner 

Before creating a print queue, you should try to delete it first in case it had already been created improperly. After you create the print queue, verify it was created properly by issuing the following commands: 

lpstat -v zebra2 

(This should print the following as a response: "device for zebra2: /dev/null") 

lpstat -p zebra2 -D -l 

(This should print something similar to this: printer zebra2 is idle. enabled since Fri Mar 21 12:23:56 PST 2003. available)
