Printer Management with FOG

  • Hello,
    First some informations about my System:

    root@FOG:~# cat /proc/version
    Linux version 4.9.0-8-amd64 ( (gcc version .3.0 20170516 (Debian 6.3.0-18+deb9u1) ) #1 SMP Debian 4.9.110-3+deb9u4 (2018-08-21)

    root@FOG:~# cat /etc/issue
    Debian GNU/Linux 9 \n \l

    Fog Version:
    bzImage Version: 4.15.2
    bzImage32 Version: 4.15.2

    I want to run four TCP IP Printer in my local Network on Port 9100. The addresses are HP Laser Jet 712 HP Laser Jet 712 HP510 Plotter HP510 Plotter
    I’ve two rooms where I want to assign one Laser Jet and one plotter.
    The Print Management should be done by Fog.

    My problems:
    -) Printers:
    In both cases (Plotter and Laser Jet) the Network connection is named on the local PC as 9100; The port name.
    If I do the installation by hand Windows names it with the IP address.

    As the two connections have the same name “9100” I think the second one replaces the first one … So I can only assign one Printer.

    -) Changing the printer setup on FOG changes sometimes nothing. (e.g. the name of the inf file - the printer …) My solution was to deploy the computer again …

    -) Group management with Printers: If I update a group with the option “only Assigned Printers” the clients are not updated. The are still in the mode “No Printer Management”
