Printer can't be removed under Solaris 10

Printer can't be removed under Solaris 10

Printer can't be removed under Solaris 10

(OP)
Dear all,
we are running a Solaris 10 8/08 Sparc system called 'test-s' where #lpstat -t shows such a line:
system for mps2_p: printer-s (as lpd://printer-s/printers/mps2_p#Solaris)
How can we get rid of this entry because #lpstat -x mps2_p says 'unknown printer'.
THX for any help!

RE: Printer can't be removed under Solaris 10

Did you mean lpadmin -x mps2_p?

What's in /etc/printers.conf (or /etc/cups/printers.conf if you are using CUPS) for that printer?

@Annihilannic
There is no /etc/cups/printers.conf file and there is NO
mps2_p entry in /etc/printers.conf.
Of course I mean #lpadmin -x command

Just an information more:
#lpstat -lp mps2_p
printer mps2_p idle. enabled since Mon Oct 26 09:25:52 2009. available.
Remote Name: mps2_p
Remote Server: printer-s
As one can see here the printer mps2_p is attached at the re-
mote system called printer-s.
I will not delete the mps2_p printer I only want to remove
this entry at the system test-s where lpstat -t shows this
line (see above).

Have you had any luck with this?

If not, what *is* in your /etc/printers.conf?  I'm a bit baffled if there is no entry in there but it is still being reported by lpstat -t...
