Cannot access imported LDAP users in iPrint Appliance iManag

I have installed the iPrint Appliance (version 1.1) and have imported a few printers successfully by using miggui (did not transfer the ID). I wanted to test out deploying the printers to a test user so I configured the LDAP import to import users from eDir to the iPrint appliance.
The import was successful and the objects seem to be created under the APPLIANCE_XXXXXX tree in ConsoleOne.
However, when I log on to the iPrint Appliance iManager, I am unable to access the imported users. The highest level that I can browse to is the iPrintAppliance organization (o=iprintappliance) or our production organization (o=our_org). The tree that contains the imported "our_org" objects is above that level.
I cannot seem to locate any information about how to manage the imported users to assign printers. Is there something that I am doing wrong or could someone explain how to access the imported users to manage the imported iPrint Appliance printers?

Thank you very much!

Re: Cannot access imported LDAP users in iPrint Appliance iM

I don't see any replies to this thread. So, I wanted to post a follow-up question. This will help me determine whether I have an incorrect installation. Again, I cannot seem to find it in the documentation. https://www.novell.com/documentation/iprint-appliance1/iprint_appliance/data/boeyibx.html

How do I assign a printer to a user? The iPrint appliance Management Tools page has an iPrint Printer Configuration (iManager) option. However, I don't see any way to assign the iPrint Appliance printers to the iPrint Appliance users.

Thank you for any help that you can provide

You should be able to do this using the iPrint Client Management
function within iManager.

Re: Cannot access imported LDAP users in iPrint Appliance iM

Thank you,
I think that I see what I was doing wrong. When you log on to iManager as admin.iprintappliance, you can see two organizations. The iPrint Appliance org and your own (which seems to be the iPrint Appliance import of your organization). So, I was able to select users from that organization and assign a printer.
Unfortunately, the printer is not pushed out. Instead, the user has to manually install it.

Thanks for your help with this.
