DCPS printing to HP 4015

Does anyone know how to set TWO default parameters on a DCPS queue? I want all jobs to print duplex AND to go to the stacker. I've tried the following, and it prints duplex but doesn't go to the stacker:

$ @sys$startup:dcps$execution_queue -
HP4015 - ! P1 - Execution queue name
"ip_rawtcp/10.123.1.122:9100" - ! P2 - Interconnect protocol/device name
DCPS_LIB - ! P3 - Logical name for library(ies)
"sides=2, output_tray=stacker"- ! P4 - Default queue♦
"/DEFAULT=(FLAG,NOBURST,NOTRAILER)/SEPARATE=(NOFLAG,NOBURST,NOTRAILER)" -♦
""- ! P6 - Communication speed(serial
- ! devices only)
""- ! P7 - Device characteristics
"" ! P8 - Verify on/off

By the way, the last parameter is supposed to be "verify on/off", but the documentation never says what you're supposed to put in there! It would be nice to have some logging on disk, as I am not at the customer location.

Re: DCPS printing to HP 4015

You are specifying the output tray correctly. Where does the output go when specified on the PRINT command?

PRINT /PARAMETERS=OUTPUT_TRAY=STACKER

DCPS should send output to the Bin 1 tray when Stacker is specified, as BIN_1 and STACKER are synonyms.

And any character can be put into P8 to turn verification on.

I had the customer try printing with /param=output_tray=stacker and it still went to the normal tray.

What trays do you have on the printer and how are they physically labeled?

Send the attached file to the printer and take a look at the "output tray" section. It should list your stacker tray and perhaps give a clue as to what PostScript code might be used to select it.

The other output trays are selected with PostScript code containing the following strings:

Bin 1: OPTIONAL OUTBIN 1
Bin 2: OPTIONAL OUTBIN 2
Bin 3: OPTIONAL OUTBIN 3
Bin 4: OPTIONAL OUTBIN 4
Bin 5: OPTIONAL OUTBIN 5
Standard: TOP OUTPUT BIN
