Printer Agents that reside on OES1 Linux servers that have iPrint Direct enabled, will lose the iPrint Direct setting when migrated from OES1 to OES2.


The resolution/workaround is to re-enable iPrint Direct on each of the Printer Agents after the migration has completed.  This can be accomplished by:
  1. Running iManager
  2. Select the iPrint link
  3. Select Manage Print Manager
  4. Select the desired print manager object
  5. Click on the Printer Agents tab
  6. Place a check mark in the iPrint Direct column for each Printer Agent as needed
