Added Drivers from iManager

Does this work at all? We are currently running iprint on NW 6.5, sp5
and imanager version 2.5.20051102 (20051102_1041). We have been running
iprint for 3-4 years and I have NEVER been able to add drivers through
iManager - regardless of the NW version and SP. Is there some secret
ritual that I don't know about to get this to work? I always have to
resort to good old NWADMN32 to add any drivers. Thanks.

Hi Tim,

This works for me. NW 6.5 sp6, but sp5 version of NDPSGW.NLM. Using Internet Explorer. to access iManager. Here's how I do it:

Download drivers from mfr to a shared network drive
Extract driver files to a subfolder
From iManager
iPrint
Manager Broker
Resource Management Service Tab
Click on Windows XP
Add from file
Browse out to the inf file in the driver subfolder I already created
Open (wait til you get message that it was applied)
Printer Driver Profile
Create Printer Driver Profile
Choose your driver
Create
Give it a name, like HPLJ 4250 w/env feeder
Create
Make your configuration selections
Ok
OK
Next
Manage Printer
Assign a driver and a profile

Exactly what I tried to do, when when I get to point to Add the driver
from the File I get the error on the bottom-right corner of the IE page.
I then went to a Windows 2000 Pro workstation and was able to add
drivers, policies, etc. - with no problems. So, I'm assuming this must
have something to so with the glorious Windows XP Pro OS and a setting
in IE. I'll mess around with some of the security settings and see if I
can get it to work.

Have you ever tried a test setup - test server in a test tree.

I sounds to me that you have a problem with your 'production' tree
that you have been unable to resolve...

Perhaps one of the sysop volunteers can help you further.

Is there a way to get NWADMN32 to upload WinXP drivers? I can upload most
drivers with iManager but I have odd problems all the time and sometimes it
doesn't work at all...

I believe only iManager handles Windows XP drivers.

True, but for most printers, the XP and Windows 2000 drivers are the same
and in those cases, it is enough to just upload Windowws 2000 drivers and
XP machines will just use the same drivers.

Marcel, the answer you supplied to my other post regarding iPrint Admin
from iManager also solved this problem and I can now add Win XP print
drivers and assign profiles. Works fine. Thanks to all of you.

We have a similar problem. When I click on the Add from File or Add from
System I get a message "iPrint client must be installed". I have the 4.26
client installed and am able to print to iprint printers on this machine.
I've installed this patch already:

http://www.novell.com/support/search.do?cmd=displayKC&docType=kc&sliceId=SAL_Public&externalId=3018152

plus the "iPrint Update to NetWare 6.5 Support Pack 6 iprntnw65sp6f".
What's next? Thanks.
