IPDS print operator commands
InfoPrint Manager offers a comprehensive set of operator commands that can be used to manage printing on IPDS printers. These commands can be used to help manage printing priorities and also help by providing the operator with functions that are useful when dealing with problems that can occur in the printing system. This table describes several of the most commonly used operator tasks, and their corresponding commands. For more information, see the RICOH InfoPrint Manager: Reference.
|Task||Description||InfoPrint Manager Command Syntax|
|1||Disable||Stop a printer from receiving new jobs.||pddisable -cd dest where dest specifies either a logical or an actual destination (printer) object.|
|2||Enable||Allow a printer to receive new jobs.||pdenable -cd dest where dest specifies either a logical or an actual destination (printer) object.|
|3||Query active job||Query which job is actively printing on a printer
Note: The query response is based on the last set of station counters obtained from the printer, which is printing pages continuously. To get an absolutely accurate query you must:
|pdls -f "destination-name-requested==ldest && current-job-state==printing" server: where server specifies the InfoPrintAIX server to which the job was submitted, and destspecifies the actual destination (physical printer).|
