13.2. Setting the local configuration properties of a print server#

The configuration of the CUPS print server is performed via settings from the LDAP directory service and Univention Configuration Registry. If the Univention Configuration Registry Variable cups/include/local is set to true, the /etc/cups/cupsd.local.conf file is included, in which arbitrary options can be defined. Changes in this file require ucr commit /etc/cups/cupsd.conf to get applied.

If an error occurs when working through a printer queue (e.g., because the connected printer is switched off), the further processing of the queue is stopped by default. This must then be reactivated by the administrator (see Administration of print jobs and print queues). If the Univention Configuration Registry Variable cups/errorpolicy is set to retry-job, CUPS automatically attempts to process unsuccessful print jobs again every 30 seconds.
