Printer Driver Profile

Netware 6.5 SP7
iManager 2.7.2
iPrint client 5.12

In iManager/iPrint I do 2 things: (1) setup a "RPM Configuration" for updating the printer driver on the workstations (Windows XP Pro SP3), and (2) setup a "Printer Driver Profile" for the printer defaults such as duplex printing, etc.

The workstations will receive the driver update (#1 above) but the printing defaults (#2 above) are not being installed. Any ideas?

Thanks...

Edit the printer object and assign the profile to that printer+os?

Profiles arn't automatically assigned (as you could be using 1 base driver
and several profiles, depending on needs, printer configuration, etc).

I assigned the profile to the printer and it still did not install the settings. I tried it on 2 types of printer installations: (1) a printer that was already installed and (2) a new printer installation. In both instances, the settings that were made in the Driver Profile were ignored.

forgot to include in the previous post:

- these are NDPS printers, not iPrint
- as a test, I installed an iPrint printer and the settings in the Printer Driver Profile installed correctly. So it seems that only the NDPS printers are the ones that don't recognize the settings in the driver profile.

AFAIK, this only works with ICM or if the user manually browse to the
ipp website and installs from there.

Could be wrong though

am I understanding you right in that you are saying the Printer Driver Profile only works with iPrint printers, not NDPS? If so, how do I install the printer settings when using NDPS?

You don't.....

Upgrade to iPrint is my suggestion, or if you wants to stick with NDPS,
use a 3.party tool like "Printer Properties Pro"

management will not allow us to upgrade to iPrint. They say that when using iPrint there isn't a queue on the server in which we can delete print jobs. Is that correct?

Nope.....

iPrint is simply NDPS on steriods....

Meaning it uses IPP protocol, and allows you to download printerdrivers
using a webside.

Seen from a backend perspective, there's no difference between NDPS and
iPrint.

From a frontend view, it'll req. an iPrint client/agent installed

I have iprint and the latest iprint client

The printer installs, but not printer driver profile.

NW65SP9 Cluster server runs NDPS Manager and Broker

Printer Driver Profile had no issues.

Newly Created printer and Profile.

Can't get it to work.
