If a printer needs to be replaced or you want to move the printer to a different location, you must delete the printer information from the LP print service before you physically remove it from the print server. You should also make sure that all the current print requests on the printer are printed or moved to another printer to be printed.
Not only does the printer information need to be deleted from the print server, but it also needs to be deleted from the print clients or network name service. If you delete a local printer from a print server, you should delete the remote printer entry from the print clients or network name service. If you move a printer to another print server, you need to delete the old remote printer entry from the print clients or network name service. Then, add access to the remote printer in its new location.
For detailed information on how to delete a local and remote printer, see How to Delete a Printer and Remote Printer Access. You can use Solaris Print Manager to delete a local or remote printer. However, Solaris Print Manager does not enable you to move queued print requests to another printer.
