How to Specify the Text in PRINTER BANNERS

In this procedure, you create the strings that appear at the top of the banner page and at the start of the handling instructions on the bottom of the page.

Before You Begin

You must be in the Security Administrator role in the global zone. You have planned the banners.

  1. Edit the label_encodings file.
    # pfedit encodings-file
  2. Modify the PRINTER BANNERS section of the file.
    1. Create prefixes and suffixes.

      These strings are associated with the text in the printer banner lines of banner and trailer pages.

      name= ORCON;                    prefix;
    2. Specify the names of words to associate with any existing compartments in sensitivity labels.

      You can associate compartments with particular prefixes and suffixes. Prefixes precede the compartment text and suffixes follow the compartment text on the printed output

      name= (FULL SB NAME);            compartments= 3;
      name= (FULL SA NAME);            compartments= 2;
