The first form of lpmove moves specific print requests (request-ID) to a specific destination.
The second form of the lpmove command moves all print requests from one destination (destination1) to another (destination2). This form of lpmove also rejects new print requests for destination1.
lpmove moves individual requests or entire queues only between local printers or between remote printers, not between a local and a remote printer. You can move only requests that were not previously transferred to the server.
When moving requests, lpmove does not check the acceptance status of the destination to which the print requests are being moved (see accept(1M)). lpmove does not move requests that have options (for example, content type or requiring a special form) that cannot be handled by the new destination.
The following operands are supported:
The specific print request to be moved. Specify request-ID as the identifier associated with a print request as reported by lpstat. See lpstat(1).
The name of the printer or class of printers (see lpadmin(1M)) to which lpmove moves a specified print request. Specify destination using atomic, POSIX-style (server:destination) syntax.
The name of the destination from which lpmove moves all print requests. Specify destination using atomic, POSIX-style (server:destination) syntax.
The name of the destination to which lpmove moves all print requests. Specify destination using atomic, POSIX-style (server:destination) syntax.
