No Create Driver Store Option

In iManager 2.0.2 options under iPrint do not include Create Driver Store,
only create broker, create printer, create print manager, etc. etc.
Logged in as admin with full rights. Running NW OES 6.5 sp5 and edir
version 8.7.3.
Thanks

There are two iPrint management plugins. One to manage a NetWare server
and one to mange a Linux server. To create a Driver Store and the Linux
objects on a Linux server, you'll need the other plugin.

The NetWare plugin only runs on a NetWare server or on a Windows
workstation with Mobile iManager. The Linux plugin will run on a
NetWare or Linux server, or with Mobile iManager on Windows or Linux.
Hope that helps.

This is helpful, but I guess I am confused. We are running Netware OES 6.5
sp5 and I am running iManager from my Windows XP workstation. so what plug-
in do I need? Most of the services show up in iManager, just the one to
create the driver store is missing.
Thank You

First of all, let me just clarify that a Driver Store is only available
if you are using a Linux server to run the iPrint services. If you are
using a NetWare server, the same functionality is provided by a "Broker"
and its "Resource Management Service" (or RMS for short).

So, if you are running iPrint on a NetWare server, create a Broker, and
if you are running iPrint on a Linux server, create a Driver Store.

If you still want to manange a Linux server from the NetWare server's
iManager, you will need to install the other iPrint plugin on iManager.
Once it is installed, you'll see two separate "iPrint" sections in
iManager, one for managing Linux server and one to manage NetWare servers.
Hope that helps.
