Apart from the procedure described in chapter Print Server Administration, the steadyPRINT Center also offers the function of importing print servers via a CSV file. Specify the file to be imported via Printing Environment > Local Printers and Shares > Import Local Printers.


Formatting the CSV file

The print server name and the domain of the respective server has to be defined in the first two columns. Subsequently, any number of printers can follow. It is important to ensure that there is a sufficient number of columns for printers.





Description of the columns:

1.PrintServer: Name of print server or computer
2.Domain: Name of domain
3.Printer[n]: Indicates the printer on the print server (Information can also be given without complete UNC path)


Example for CSV file with complete UNC path


perseus;;\\perseus\Lexmark T642;\\perseus\Lexmark T725

pluto2;;\\pluto2\Kyocera FS-600;\\pluto2\Kyocera FS-800;\\pluto2\Kyocera FS-900


Example for CSV file without complete UNC path


perseus;;Lexmark T642;Lexmark T725

pluto2;;Kyocera FS-600;Kyocera FS-800;Kyocera FS-900





Domain in CSV File is not Specified


If the domain of the print server to be imported is not specified, the first computer object found in the domain trust will be used.




Adjustment of the Print Server Role


By default, an imported print server is arranged and displayed as a local print server in the steadyPRINT Center. By changing the print server role via settings in the print server view, you can convert it into a normal print server and have it displayed in the tree under print server.
