Server software prerequisites

InfoPrint Manager for Linux requires the 64-bit (x86_64) Linux operating system to be installed at one of these distributions:

  • CentOS 7
  • Oracle Linux Server 7.5
  • Red Hat Enterprise Server 7
  • SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 12
  • SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 15
  • The Linux Mobile Secure Print feature is not supported on SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 15.
  • If tuned daemon is running on a RHEL 7, it must not be allowed to modify the kernel parameter kernel.sched_min_granularity_ns.
  • If you run InfoPrint Manager as root you must set: ROOT_USES_LANG variable from /etc/sysconfig/language file is set to yes.
  • The authorized user must be able to run the ping command. The package that provides this command is iputils. If, for security reasons, the ping command is restricted to a certain group, the authorized user must be a member of that certain group.

  • If you run InfoPrint Manager on CentOS, RHEL, or SLES 12, before you run the installation, if the SystemGroup directive in the /etc/cups/cups-files.conf CUPS file does not contain the 'sys' group, you must add it.
  • If you run InfoPrint Manager on SLES 15, before you run the installation, you must:
    • create the 'sys' group and assign its group ID to 3:
      groupadd -g 3 sys
    • add the user 'root' to the 'sys' group:
      usermod -a -G sys root
    • edit the SystemGroup directive in /etc/cups/cups-files.conf to contain only the group 'sys'.
