You can cancel any job in the print queue with the qcan Command or smit Command. When you cancel a print job, you are prompted to provide the name of the print queue where the job resides and the job number to be canceled.
This procedure applies to both local and remote print jobs.
The qcan command cancels either a particular job number in a local or remote print queue, or all jobs in a local print queue. To determine the job number, type the qchk command.
The basic format of the qcan command is:
qcan -PQueueName -x JobNumber
See the qcan command in the AIX 5L Version 5.1 Commands Reference for the exact syntax.
For example, to cancel job number 123 on whichever printer the job is on, type:
qcan -x 123
For example, to cancel all jobs queued on printer lp0, type:
qcan -X -Plp0
Note: This operating system also supports the BSD UNIX cancel print command (lprm) and the System V UNIX cancel print command (cancel). See the lprm and cancel commands in the AIX 5L Version 5.1 Commands Reference for more information and the exact syntax.
