    Gateway and Network Configuration Printer and job messages SNMP can broadcast messages about the printer and the jobs on the system. Printer messages may announce that the printer is idle, printing, or out of paper. Job messages announce that jobs are pending, processing, or completed. Other job-related information may include the job owners name, the job quantity, the job identifier, etc.

  • Page 29: Backup And Restore

    2 Backup and Restore To ensure a smooth transition from DocuSP software levels and to maintain the DocuSP system for the long term, backing up and restoring system and configuration information on a regular basis is part of a well-maintained printing environment.
  • Page 30: When To Restore A Configuration

    CAUTION: It is strongly recommended that a System Backup and Restore only be performed when directed by a Xerox customer service representative. When to restore a Configuration The following items detail when to use the backup and restore configuration option.
  • Page 31: Configuration Backup

    Backup and Restore It is recommended that the System Backup process be completed after the system has been running in production for a week or two. The System Backup should be performed once a month, and it should be completed during a time when the printer is not in use, such as at night.
  • Page 32: Restore Configuration

    Backup and Restore CAUTION: Avoid selecting the option to back up Jobs. The Jobs selection in Configuration Backup saves the contents of the inQ, which contains all Job Manager (Active, Inactive, and Completed) jobs. The backup may require a significant amount of time and space to accomplish, and does not save any job ticket information.
  • Page 33: Additional Backup Information

    Backup and Restore NOTE: Do not use a System Restore when there has been a hard drive failure. The Backup System is only a partition of the hard drive. NOTE: Refer to the appropriate Online Help for detailed procedures and SUN documentation for additional information on saving a system image.
  • Page 34: Frequently Asked Questions

    What older DocuSP tools do these options replace? For Configuration Backup, the Bridge backup tool used by the Xerox Service Representative. In addition, certain information had to be recorded by hand or on hardcopy for manual restoration. For System Backup, the DSPERU or UNIX UFS dump routines.
  • Page 35 Backup and Restore How big are the files? Configuration files can be very small, depending upon the options selected during the backup. The System Backup partition is set at 10 Gbytes specfically for the system image. Where are the files saved? Configuration files may be saves to any available DocuSP location, including the local hard disk or a shared network drive.
  • Page 36: Docusp Emergency Recovery Utility (Dsperu)

    Backup and Restore DocuSP Emergency Recovery Utility (DSPERU) The DocuSP Emergency Recovery (DSPERU) utility is specifically designed for backing up and restoring DocuSP systems. The utility allows you to restore the system files to a hard drive that is larger or smaller than the one on which the files were originally backed up, assuming there is enough space on the target drive to hold the data.
  • Page 37: Required Levels Of Expertise

  • Page 87: Pcl Offset/Separator/Subset Finishing Command

    Finishing PCL offset/separator/subset finishing command The use of the PCL separator command, ESCl1T, in combination with DocuSP queue defaults enables subset finishing for PCL jobs. The PCL separator command defines offset segments of a job. PCL does not commonly support finishing.
  • Page 88: Pcl Paper Source Command

    Finishing PCL paper source command Use the PCL Paper Source command esc 1 # H to program a PCL print job to use a specific paper. The PCL decomposer on the DocuSP Controller reads the paper source command and, using the PCL Paper Sources option in the Queue Properties and maps the command to the appropriate paper.
  • Page 89: Backup And Restore Of Tray Settings

    Finishing Once the print job has been sent, the user cannot change media sources. However, the XPIF job ticket media source to tray mapping can be overridden for all the trays on the queue. There are two ways in which an operator can specify the PCL tray to media mapping: 1.
  • Page 90: Stacking Order

    Mixed stacking is enabled upon installation but can be disabled if you choose to do so. If you wish to have it enabled at a later date, a Xerox Service Representative must assist you. Additional finishing information The DocuSP is unable to dual staple 3-hole punched stock. If dual staple is selected when using pre-drilled paper, improper registration will occur.
