While you are using the InfoPrint SMIT
production print interface, you can change the queue you are monitoring
if you previously set up a queue information file. A queue information
file maps queue names to their corresponding environment files. Queue information file—InfoPrint SMIT
production print interface shows the contents of the default
queue information file, /usr/lpp/pd/bin/queue_info.

To set up and use a queue information file, complete these
Create an environment file for each queue that you want to monitor
through the InfoPrint SMIT production print interface. Specify the appropriate
values for the environment variables. Store the environment files
in either the directory represented by the PDBASE environment
variable or the directory represented by the PDNAMESP environment
variable. If operators on different AIX systems
will share the files, store them in the directory represented by the PDNAMESP environment variable. For more information, see Customizing the default InfoPrint SMIT
production print interface environment file.
Update the queue_info file in the /usr/lpp/pd/bin directory. For example, you have two queues, ksrv-q1 and ksrv-q2. Their respective environment files
are q1.env and q2.env, located in
the /usr/lpp/pd/bin directory. Update the queue_info file with these
You must include the full path for each environment file you specify.
If you create a queue information file with a different name or
store it in a different directory, make sure that the PPO_QUEUE_INFO_FILE environment variable in all of your environment files specifies
the correct directory and file name.
