Changing device information

You can use the InfoPrint Manager Administration GUI, the pddeviceop command, and the pdset command to change information for SNMP devices.

The value of the snmp-active actual destination attribute must be true, and the printer device associated with the actual destination must support the operation. You must have write permission to the actual destination, and depending on the SNMP version that you use, the snmp-write-community-name (V1) or the snmpv3-username (V3) actual destionation attributes must be set properly for the pddeviceop command or GUI commands to work.

From the Device Information window in the InfoPrint Manager Administration GUI, you can reset the specific device, take it offline, or put it online. You can also change the contact or location information.

You use the pddeviceop command to reset a specific device, take it offline, put it online, as well as lock and unlock the operation panel for the specific device.

You can use the pdset command or the InfoPrint Manager Administration GUI to change the contact or location information for SNMP devices.

Note: You cannot combine setting device-specific and actual destination attrributes in the same pdset command.

For more information about the pddeviceop and pdset commands, see the “InfoPrint Manager Tools” in the InfoPrint Manager: Reference.
