You can cancel any job in the print queue with the Web-based System Manager fast path or with the qcan or smit commands. 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.
To cancel a print job using the Web-based System Manager fast path, type:
In the Printer Queues container, select the print job, then use the menus to cancel it from a print queue.
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 Version 4.3 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: The AIX 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 Version 4.3 Commands Reference for more information and the exact syntax.
To cancel a print job using SMIT, type:
