You should use the BSD DSS only when there is either no other way to communicate with a device (for example, it is connected to a non-AIX processor) or you require:
- A terminating actual destination for the configurable transform subsystem
- An exit for your own use
The BSD DSS is capable of mapping InfoPrint Manager job and document attributes to options for your destination command. InfoPrint Manager uses the values in the attribute-map attribute to map InfoPrint Manager job and document attributes to options that append the destination-command value. This provides a means to customize the options passed from InfoPrint Manager to your destination command. Each value of the attribute map consists of an InfoPrint Manager attribute name, a colon, and a string containing the option flag to which the attribute maps. InfoPrint Manager appends the value of the attribute after the option flag in the generated command.
For example, if you set your attribute-map attribute to this:
copy-count:-N job-name:-T job-owner:-Dand your destination command is
qprt -c -P mpcl, the BSD actual destination would generate this command:
qprt -c -P mpcl -N copy_count_value -T job_name_value -D job_owner_value filename
The attribute-map attribute defaults to destination-pass-through:-o, which is appropriate if your destination command is rembak. Set your attribute-map attribute appropriately for your destination command.
If you are using the rembak destination command, these attribute-map values are recommended:
|attribute-map values to set||Example -x specification|
-x"attribute-map='job-name:-o Z printer-pass-through:-o'"
