How to Disable Printer Banner on Tru64 Box

Hello All,

We have an ERP system running in our Tru64 Box 4.0G.

But when users send a job to the printer, after printing the job it prints a new page with Host name, User Name .

I already used the lprsetup to modify a parameter that disable/enable this Banner.

sb NO BOOL off.

But it still printing the extra page.

I would like to know how do i disable this banner in order to save some paper.

Thanks a lot for your time.

Regards


Bruno

Hey Michael,

I´ve checked this parameter and it´s already set as
sh BOOL off

Do you know anything else that could help it ?

Bruno,

this must be set on. How did you check it? With lprsetup?
