This IBM Redbooks publication provides installation and customization information and samples to help you implement IBM Infoprint Server for z/OS. Infoprint Server is an optional feature of z/OS that uses z/OS UNIX System Services. This feature is the basis for a total print serving solution for the z/OS environment. It lets you consolidate your print workload from many servers onto a central z/OS print server. Infoprint Server delivers improved efficiency and lower overall printing cost with the flexibility for high-volume, high-speed printing from anywhere in the network. With Infoprint Server, you can reduce the overall cost of printing while improving manageability, data retrievability, and usability.
The following topics are described:
- Migrating from basic mode to extended mode
- Configuring an HTTP server for Infoprint Central
- Coordinating settings in JES, OMVS, TCP/IP, and the Printer Inventory using a cross-reference tool, with documentation
- Viewing messages in aoplogu using sample AOPBATCH JCL
- Monitoring and cleaning up CEEDUMP file using a sample tool
- Customizing the ICONV tables for custom code-page creation
