    Adding remote printer to non-global zone

    KMcGregor
      I have a non-global zone with a remote printer defined, and lpstat shows
      # lpstat -lp abcdef
      printer abcdef disabled since Thu Jun 06 13:18:43 2013. available.

      Remote Name: abcdef
      Remote Server: 192.168.x.x

      On another non-global zone I want to print to the same printer. I referred to the Solaris Printing SAG, and I thought all I had to do is
      lpadmin -p abcdef -s abcdefserver

      but lpstat -lp abcdef gives
      Failed to get printer info for abcdef: not-found

      The zone is
      SunOS myzone 5.10 Generic_142909-17 sun4u sparc SUNW,Sun-Fire-V490

      and the destination (abcdefserver) is a Windows server with the LPD service installed.

      What else do I have to do? I can ping and telnet abcdefserver:515, so the network part seems to be fine.
