Solaris 11: Setup Printer server using Cups and Windows 7 x64

Now that Solaris 11.1 now comes with cups v1.4.5 I thought I would replace our old Solaris 10 lpd server with a cups set up. The printer server is used by many clients, MacOS, Windows and Solaris. Note: Solaris SRU fixed a few problems with Cups.

  • Create Solaris zone (printsrv)
  • Setup cups server and printers
  • Setup Windows 7 clients
