Routes output job from one destination to a new destination.
dccswitch original_destination new_destination.
UNIX and Windows
dccswitch will route jobs intended for a specified destination to another destination.
Original_destination new_destination: All requests waiting to print on original_destination to be delivered on new_destination.
dccswitch destination2 destination8: Switch request from destination2 to destination8.
dccswitch destination2: Switch request from destination2 to destination found in ALT_des: in the destination2 configuration file.
dccswitch destination2 none: Allow request to print on destination2, no switch.
The status information will still show the requests with their original destinations. The actual switching occurs at de-spooling not at spooling. To switch back after the original destination is again able to print, switch the destination to none. This action can have unintended results if extreme caution is not taken. Please contact support before using this command as there may be other, safer methods to achieve the same effect.
