8.5 Using the iPrint Web Page

If you are using the default iPrint Web pages, or embedding URLs in custom iPrint Web pages, ensure that the links to the default iPrint Printer List Web page or other custom pages in \ippdocs must use the DNS name or IP address of the print service. This is the same IP address used in the cluster load script for iPrint. During a failover, this IP address moves with the shared volume to other servers in the cluster.

NOTE:On NSS volumes for Cluster environments, \ippdocs is an "Alias" under the /etc/opt/novell/iprint/httpd/conf/iprint_g.conf file, which points to the /media/nss/NSSVOL1/var/opt/novell/iprint/htdocs/ directory. In case of a non-NSS setup, \ippdocs points to the /var/opt/novell/iprint/htdocs/ directory.

If you use the server's DNS name or IP address or any other IP address other than the one assigned to the iPrint Resource, links to iPrint Web pages break when iPrint fails over to a different node in the cluster. iPrint links display a blank page or return an error.
