System Administration Guide: Printing

ProcedureHow to Debug Printing Problems

  1. On the system that you want to debug remote printing problems, become superuser or assume an equivalent role.

    Roles contain authorizations and privileged commands. For more information about roles, see Configuring RBAC (Task Map) in System Administration Guide: Security Services.

  2. Type the following command:

    # echo "lpr.debug /var/tmp/lpr.debug" >>/etc/syslog.conf

    Note –

    The white space between lpr.debug and /var/tmp/lpr.debug must be a tab.

  3. Create the lpr.debug file.

    # touch /var/tmp/lpr.debug
  4. Restart the syslog service.

    # svcadm restart system.log
