Oracle Solaris Print Manager is a Java technology-based GUI that enables you to manage local and remote printing configuration. This tool can be used in the files, Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP), Network Information Service Plus (NIS), and Network Information Service Plus (NIS+) naming service environments.
To use this tool, you must meet the following requirements:
You must be logged in as superuser or assume an equivalent role.
You must subscribe to the Print Management profile.
You must have the Solaris.print.admin authorization.
Oracle Solaris Print Manager centralizes printer information when the information is used in conjunction with a naming service. Using a naming service for storing printer configuration information is the preferred method, because a naming service makes printer information available to all systems on the network. This method provides easier printer administration. Oracle Solaris Print Manager recognizes existing printer information on print servers, print clients, and in the naming service databases. No conversion tasks are required to use Oracle Solaris Print Manager as long as the print clients are running at least the Solaris 2.6 release.
The Oracle Solaris Print Manager package is SUNWppm.
