Usage notes:

  • If the inserter controller does not use control files, do not specify this property.
  • Ricoh ProcessDirector provides sample rules files for several inserters in the inserter directory:

    • /aiw/aiw1/samples/control_files/inserter on AIX and Linux

    • C:\aiw\aiw1\samples\control_files\inserter on Windows

    File names are in this format:

    inserter.icf.xxx.dsc

    inserter and xxx differ for each inserter manufacturer.

  • To send the second inserter control file to the inserter controller, include steps based on the WriteInserterControlFile and SendInserterControlFile step templates in the workflow.
  • If your inserter controller only uses one control file for each job, do not specify this property.
  • For information about the syntax of inserter rules files, see the Ricoh ProcessDirector information center.
