PSF/6000 or InfoPrint Manager: support of 6408s
ABSTRACT: PSF/6000 support of 6408s
SEARCH ARG: psf/6000 6408
TOPIC THREAD: PRINT
I have a customer that wants to set up a remote printing environment
using PSF/AIX. They want to spool all the MVS output to RAID disk
attached to the RS/6000. We know that we can control and drive the
3900-0W1s via PSF/AIX, but the customer also has several STK impact
printers that we need to replace. Can we attach a couple of 6408s
to PSF/AIX for the impact applications? If so, do the 6408s need to
be IPDS models? Thanks for the help.
PSF for AIX does not currently support impact printers except through
PSF Direct. Support of LAN-attached IPDS 6400s is included in InfoPrint
Manager for AIX V2.1 (5648-A35) and V3.1 (5648-B34).
AIX, on the other hand, can support ASCII models of these printers.
It might be feasible to support the 3900s off of PSF for AIX while
driving the 64xx's off of AIX. It would depend on the customer's
environment and requirements for their MVS printing on these impact
printers. For example, in this configuration host FCBs would not be

Thanks for using WWQ&A.
