Rebuilding the PPD Cache File

A rebuild of the PPD cache file removes the existing cache and builds a completely new cache. This process can be time-consuming, especially if many PPD files are on the system. Therefore, only request a rebuild of the PPD cache file in troubleshooting situations. For guidelines that pertain to updating and rebuilding the PPD cache file, see Description of the Command-Line Options for the ppdmgr Utility.
