Predefined Printers

     In order to speed up adding printers when we're in a rush and make life easier for folks when I'm not around, I have predefined some barcode printers and laser printers.
     LRS.VPS.V1R80.CNLT($README) documents those currently defined but not used.
They were defined with 'dummy' IP addresses of '77.77.77.77'.

     For example, you might want a new laser printer on 10.10.12.33 and a new barcode printer on 10.10.22.17.

      You would change laser printer 'VPRT3X9P' '77.77.77.77' to '10.10.12.33' and barcode printer 'VPRTZ29P' '77.77.77.77' to '10.10.22.17'.

     You would add these to VPSMLIST so they will start the next time VPS is cycled. You would activate them immediately by entering console commands

'F VPS,ACT,VPRT3X9P' and 'F VPS,ACT,VPRTZ29P'.
Command 'F DRSV,DIS,VPRT3X9P' and 'F DRSV,DIS,VPRTZ29P' would probably show these 'IDLE' instead of connected to CICS, so you would have to Acquire them in CICS:

Logon A2K
SMSN
LDT/LDT
CEMT I TER(3X9P)
Overtype the 'Rel' with 'Acq'
To the same for Z29P
Logoff A2K.
Console command 'F DRSV,DIS,VPRT3X9P' and 'VPRTRZ29' should show them connected to CICS.



NOTE: Record the information so that it can be added to the MS Access database for the IP/ID Lookup part of this site.
