When I use JAMF Admin to add printers to our server, even though a PPD is captured, JAMF defaults to using a generic PPD. I have to then go into JAMF, edit the printer, uncheck the "use generic PPD", save, edit again, then update the path to the PPD, because the default path that JAMF uses, is also incorrect; then save. Is there a way to adjust how the printer is initially saved to JAMF so I don't have to go in and edit each printer (211 of them)?
I have all the printers configured on one computer. I then open JAMF Admin and select add printer. Window pops up and I select the printers I want to add to JAMF. Then save. The PPD is captured, but the software default is to use a generic PPD. I have to manually switch that for every printer.
That is how we had been doing it in the past, nearly identical script. What we are trying to do is have everything in JAMF setup to be “so simple a caveman could do it...” So to this end, we want the printers with associated PPDs all in JAMF and ready to deploy. Trying to utilize as much of the GUI as possible.
@kwoodard No, you need to do exactly same as how you doing for ldp protocol. But instead of you choose smb protocol. It is a bit tricky to add them with smb protocol.
You can see how in the link below;
