Auto reinstall Printer Agent?

Funny, someone asked me how to rename a printer.. I told him to do it from
iManager. Of coz that works but
the printer doesnt get reinstalled on the client.

So, if I have changed something cool in Printer Driver Profiles and want to
get that new cool settings out to the clients i
need to reinstall the printers manually on every client... But someone told
me at Brainshare that if I rename the printer from
iManager the printer get reinstalled automatically.

But how do I rename a Printer Agent so it gets reinstalled automatically?

Cheers...

Well, the trick works on NetWare when you rename the pritner within the manager. I don't know if it also works on Linux.

Re: Auto reinstall Printer Agent?

Anders,

sorry, took a little bit till I recognized that we have a oes 2 test iprint installation where I can check it. And even I didn't get your beer at brainshare I took a look at it :=))

I think what you are looking for could be done with the printer agent redirection that is available at the iprint manager. Here a part from the imanager help of it:

Printer Agent Redirection is useful when you are decommissioning an iPrint printer and want to automatically redirect printing to a different iPrint printer without users having to manually delete and reinstall the printer. This only works with iPrint printers.

With Printer Agent Redirection enabled by entering a Printer Redirect URL, the client attempts to access the printer and then is redirected to the new printer. The client verifies that it can access the new printer before deleting the installed printer and installing the new printer.


You'll find it in imanager 2.7 / iprint / manage print manager and there is a tab for printer agent redirection.
