where to find iprint on "server"


Where can I find out where the "iPrint Printers on server "server name""

Where can I find information on this. We have iprint on a cluster and
what ends up happening is that it displays the server that it ismounted
on. I would prefer it to state the "clustered volume ip address". The
clustered volume address is what the users hits for a web page, but it
actually lists the server name.


thanks, Joe

Re: where to find iprint on "server"

This is actually pulled from the httpd.conf file the "servername"
variable...
The variable "serverName" is set (defined) in the pdisplay page obtained via
the mod_ipp and ippsrvr. This is then used in generating the page that is
displayed. The variable is actually used in a function in the iprint.js
file named "LocalizeHeaderPage" with the following command...
SetLocalizedString(document.getElementById("iprintprintersonserver"),
ippsrvrPrinterListTitle + " " + parent.serverName);

You could go into the iprint.js file and change parent.serverName to be
anything you want.. for example:

SetLocalizedString(document.getElementById("iprintprintersonserver"),
ippsrvrPrinterListTitle + " " + "Any name you want");

However, you would have to make this change on every node in the cluster
that hosts iprint, because apache reads from the ippdocs directory, unless
of course you have changed the doc root definition in the apache conf file
to point to a directory on the shared volume. But doing this would
invalidate apache on the other nodes that don't currently host the shared
volume. SO BE CAREFUL!!!

Makes sense.

Thanks, I'll take a look at doing this.
Your answer is great help.
