Understanding the InfoPrint Manager server

The InfoPrint Manager server runs as a service on Windows. The server manages jobs submitted to it from client applications (including InfoPrint Select and Windows applications that support a print function). The InfoPrint Manager server contains a number of objects that are used to control the processing of submitted jobs. Objects include queues, logical destinations, actual destinations, and any defaults for job and document characteristics. The server administrator creates, deletes, and modifies these software objects to optimize the management and performance of the InfoPrint Manager environment.

The InfoPrint Manager server can also contain auxiliary sheets, media, resource-context objects, and transform objects. You can use auxiliary sheets to separate jobs and to print job identification information. Resource-context objects point to the directory locations of Advanced Function Presentation (AFP) resources, such as fonts and overlays, that some jobs require.
