destination-model

Identifies the make and model number defined by the manufacturer of the output device.

GUI label

Model

DSS

AIX, PSF, BSD, CUPS, InfoPrint 2000, Email, Passthrough, IPPPassthrough, IPP

Type

Initially settable with AIX, CUPS and PSF-Other attached actual destinations; resettable, single-valued with other listed DSSs

Input Synonyms

You can use the synonym printer-model or model.

Allowed Values

You can enter a text string up to 4095 characters long that contains the make and model number of the output device.

Default Value

If SNMP communication is active, InfoPrint queries the printer device and sets the values according to the response; otherwise no default value.

With Internet Printing Protocol (IPP) printers when SNMP communication is not active, the default comes from IPP.

Usage Guidelines

  • If you specify a value for the destination-model attribute, you deactivate the default provided by SNMP.
  • If you allow SNMP to determine this value for an AIX actual destination or a PSF other-driver attached actual destination, it must be one of the values of the server snmp-aix-printer-models attribute.
  • For CUPS actual destinations and PSF Other-driver attached actual destinations on a LINUX server, this value must match a PPD file in the default directory, /usr/share/cups/model, on the Linux processor on which the actual destination was created. If the printer PPD file is not located in the default location this value must be the full path to the PPD file. For example for a Ricoh Aficio Pro 907EX the value you can specify is /printing/drivers/Ricoh-Aficio_Pro_907EX_PS.ppd.
  • For AIX actual destinations and PSF other-driver attached actual destinations on an AIX server, this value must match the file prefix of a file in the /usr/lib/lpd/pio/predef directory on the AIX processor on which the actual destination was created unless the destination-model is an InfoPrint model and then the external name (for example, an InfoPrint 20) is mapped to the predefined name for you.
  • For AIX actual destinations, InfoPrint uses the value you specify here to determine the values to set for the document-formats-supported attribute.
  • For PSF TCP/IP-attached actual destinations capable of printing halftones, and for any PSF actual destination that represents a printer device with a finisher attached, specify the model name in the format InfoPrintxxxx. where xxxx is the model number, for example, InfoPrint4000-IR3-IR4. Do not put a space between InfoPrint and the model number.
    Note: If you configure these printer models as PSF other-driver attached actual destinations or as AIX actual destinations on an AIX server, specify the model name as the file prefix of a file in the /usr/lib/lpd/pio/predef directory unless the destination-model is an InfoPrint model and then the external name (for example, an InfoPrint 60) is mapped to the predefined name for you.
  • InfoPrint compares the job attribute destination-models-requested to this attribute for scheduling.
  • For IPP printers, InfoPrint uses the destination-model information for validation and scheduling.
