SMF Services for CUPS

    CUPS services are provided through two new Service Management Facility (SMF) services:

  • svc:/application/cups/scheduler

    This service manages the cupsd daemon. This daemon provides basic printing services that include queueing, filtering, spooling, notification, IPP support, device enumeration, and web management.

  • svc:/application/cups/in-lpd

    This service runs the cups-lpd daemon. This daemon provides basic RFC-1179 (LPD protocol) support for the CUPS service.

By default, these services are enabled.

The Printer Management profile and the solaris.smf.manage.cups authorization enable users who do not have a root account to manage these SMF services.
