OBIEE Windows Print Queue Configuration (Doc ID 2242922.1)

Last updated on MARCH 11, 2017

Applies to:

Business Intelligence Suite Enterprise Edition - Version 11.1.1.7.150120 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

The requirement is to use Windows Print Queues via IPP to setup printers from OBIEE. There are currently two issues affecting this requirement:

1. When submitting multiple jobs at once, the expectation is that one will submit after the other. However, one will submit, then the printer will show as busy, and then next one will skip. This leads to a batch printing request not printing all the jobs submitted.

2. When setting up the printer, the printer only seems to work when using the IP address of the print server, and not the host name. the requirement is to be able to use the host name and not the IP for security reasons.
