Multiple Printer Profiles for One Printer

Good evening,

I'm a little confused on the Printer Profiles for iPrint, is it possible to have more than one Profile associated with a particular Printer Model?

Let's say I have an HP 4015DN, and I would like one profile to print to just the Tray 1, while another Profile would be set to Print only to Tray 2. When the User tries to download/install that printer, would they then be presented with which profile they would like to use?

Novell Documentation I was looking specifically at Section 9.4.4 of the documentation, but was just wondering if someone had experience with this currently?

Thank you,

AFAIK that is not possible... But you could create two different printer objects for the same physical printer with different profiles, then in the location or description field you inform the user which profile is associated to it.

Re: Multiple Printer Profiles for One Printer

I was able to get additional confirmation. With this issue I wanted to make sure that I had at least three sources, and they concurred that two printer objects would need to be created (for a single printer) and then the two different profiles associated. I do like the idea of using the description as a point of emphasis on what the printer actually does. Tray, status, etc,.
