Running scripts before printing PDF and PostScript files

All hot folders must be created from the InfoPrint 5000 printer operator panel. The hot folders can have different job attributes, such as the actual destination to print the job (actual-destination-requested job/default job attribute) or the combination of start, end, or separator sheets to use with a job (auxiliary-sheet-selection job/default job attribute).
To enable the InfoPrint 5000 hot folder support, run scripts on the InfoPrint Manager server to create a new BSD DSS printer (together with a new logical destination and a new or existing queue), to create the custom transforms that allows InfoPrint Manager to convert the input data to the corresponding output data format, and to assemble the list of transform objects previously created on the BSD DSS printer.
To configure the InfoPrint Manager server to enable hot folder support on the InfoPrint 5000 printer:
  1. Log on to your InfoPrint Manager server.
  2. Locate the scripts provided by InfoPrint Manager: /usr/lpp/pd/bin
  3. Type this command: run_customization_1.sh nameOfServer nameOfAD nameOfQueue nameOfLD nameOfLocalFolder/yourhotfolder

    nameOfServer
    Specify the name of the InfoPrint Manager server where to create the destination.
    nameOfAD
    Specify the name of the new actual destination that will be created.
    nameOfQueue
    Specify the name of the existing queue or a new queue.
    nameOfLD
    Specify the name of the new logical destination that will be created.
    nameOfLocalFolder
    Specify the name of the local mount point.
    yourhotfolder
    Specify the name of the hot folder created at the InfoPrint 5000 printer console.

  4. Verify that a new actual destination and logical destination were created by checking the InfoPrint Manager Administration GUI.
  5. Submit a PDF or PostScript test job to the InfoPrint 5000.

Example script

run_customization_1.sh sage ip5k ip5K-q ip5k-ld "/mnt/hmi_hf"

ipk5 is the local folder.

hmi_hf is the remote sub-folder
