Print Spooling on SAP Servers

  1. 1. Output Management and Print Spooling on SAP Servers Plus Technologies LLC Company Confidential - Copyright 2011 2012
  2. 2. SAP Systems and Printing SAP itself has no enhanced print capabilities and relies on the basic spooling capabilities found at the operating system (O/S) level. These operating system spooling systems are very basic in their function. On its own, SAP print spooling has very limited uses. Plus Technologies LLC Company Confidential - Copyright 2011 2012
  3. 3. SAP Disadvantages There is no integration between O/S spoolers and SAP, therefore no print status information can be passed back to the SAP system. Further, there are no communications between printer and spooling system.  This means there is no printer or print job status available.  An SAP user looking at their SAP screen would never know whether printing actually occurred or if there was an error. O/S spooling systems do not perform advanced print spooling functions that are required by many businesses.
