ProcedureHow to Create a New Printer Form Definition

  1. On the print server, 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.

    # lpadmin -p printer-name -M -f form-name
