Access to iPrint-Manager

When I try to access browser based iPrint-Manager portal (https://192.168.x.y/psmStatus) I have to login using the supermanager-account "admin", no other account works.

Where can I set the rights (and in which way) for a single user, who has at least to delete aborted print-jobs left on our printers and other managing functions?

I've given this user managing rights to all printers and to the broker and manager object, but it doesn't work.

I think, it must be easy but I have no more idea to solve this problem.

Check out the iprint documentation. First off.. you want to be in iManager not the /psmstatus page.
Novell Documentation

Here are the print rights:
Manager


Tasks performed exclusively by the Manager are those that require the creation, modification, or deletion of objects, as well as other eDirectory administrative functions. Managers are automatically designated as Operators and Users, so they can perform all tasks assigned to those operator roles. Typical manager functions include the following:

*

Modifying and deleting Printer objects
*

Adding or deleting operators and users for a printer
*

Adding other managers
*

Configuring interested-party notification
*

Creating, modifying, or deleting printer configurations

Operator


Operators are automatically designated as Users, so they can perform all tasks assigned to Users roles. Printer management tasks performed by the operator include the following:

*

Performing all of the functions available through the Printer Control page
*

Pausing, restarting, or reinitializing printers
*

Reordering, moving, copying, and deleting jobs
*

Setting printer defaults, including locked properties

Operators cannot create, modify, or delete eDirectory objects or perform other eDirectory administrative functions.

User


Tasks performed by users include the following:

*

Submitting print jobs
*

Managing print jobs they own (users cannot copy, move, reorder, or remove jobs they do not own)

To simplify administration, the container a printer resides in is automatically assigned as a user for that printer, so all users in that container and its subcontainers can use that printer without being added to the list. You can delete the container from the list if you want to limit access to certain users, groups, or roles.

The basic role is to be able to delete hanging print jobs fromm others. psmStatus seemed to me to be the direct way (and iManager links to this page too).

I configured Role based Services (iPrintX) for the user, but he cannot get to the print job list. It comes:

Internal Server Error
IPP Error: 0xF01F4
HTTP Error: 500

The user has far ranging admin rights, what goes wrong?
