Modify CUPS Printer - A3 Paper in Tray 3

Modify CUPS Printer - A3 Paper in Tray 3

(OP)
I have a HP Color LaserJet CP5225dn that I set up using the web server at http://localhost:631/ for 50x iMacs. I have 2 trays installed. Tray 2 is A4 paper and Tray 3 is A3 paper. How do I configure the paper size per tray? At the moment the print only recognises A4 paper.

Got it, run lpoptions -l /Library/Printers/PPDs/Contents/Resources/HP Color LaserJet CP5220d Series.gz against the printer driver. Which will produce all the options.Below is the command to install Tray 3 with A3 paper.
