Removes a virtual printer.
rmvirprt -q PrinterQueueName -d QueueDeviceName
The rmvirprt command removes the virtual printer assigned to the PrinterQueueName and QueueDeviceName variable value. The rmvirprt command also removes the System Management Interface Tool (SMIT) Object Database Manager (ODM) objects associated with the specified queue and queue device.
You can use the Web-based System Manager Printer Queues application (wsm printers fast path) to run this command. You could also use the System Management Interface Tool (SMIT) smit rmvirprt fast path to run this command.
Note: When the command rmvirprt is run from the command line, it does not remove the queue or queue device, nor does it check for any jobs running or queued on the specified queue and queue device. However, if SMIT is used to run this command interactively, the corresponding queue, queue device, and, optionally, printer device, are removed along with the virtual printer, if there are no jobs running or queued.
|-d QueueDeviceName||Specifies the name of the queue device to which the virtual printer is assigned.|
|-q PrinterQueueName||Specifies the name of the print queue to which the virtual printer is assigned.|
