System Settings

  • Date: Nov 02, 2015

System Settings

The System Default component is similar to the Client Configuration component, except that it is used for the OM Plus Server. The settings include parameters that the OM Plus Server uses to operate. To access this component, from the OM Plus Control Panel, click System Settings, and then the following System Defaults screen appears.

Hold Jobs: Select a global setting to ensure that all requests spooling to OM Plus spool with a Hold status.

Purge Jobs: Select whether or not to set all requests to purge automatically.

Require Form Mounts: Require that the form specified by the job matches the form mounted to the destination.

Message Queue Keys (Linux/UNIX Only): These are the keys that UNIX uses for identifying OM Plus’ message queues. These values should only be changed at the request of a Plus Technologies support person.

Destination Defaults

Initially Accepting: Will a newly created destination automatically receive jobs?

Initially Enabled: Will a new destination automatically release jobs?

Fail-over Requests: Will a new destination automatically fail over to a defined alternate destination?

Alternate Destination: The default alternate destination.

Purge Jobs: Will jobs sent to a new destination purge after completion by default?

Hold Jobs: Will jobs sent to a new destination be held for release by default?

Open Time: Enter the number of seconds OM Plus will use to try and open a connection to a network device.

Write Time: Enter the number of seconds OM Plus requires to try to write data to a destination before marking the request interrupted and disabling the destination. A successful write to the destination resets this timer.

Purge Delay: Enter the amount of time in seconds to keep a printed request before purging or archiving it. It has a value range of 0-99999.

Close Delay: Enter the number of seconds OM Plus holds the connection to this device open to allow it to flush its buffers.

Retry time: Number of seconds allowed between attempts to deliver a job.

Metering (CPS): Enter the number of characters per second to transfer to the target device. This is useful if there is limited bandwidth.

Type: The default type to use when creating a new device. For more information, see Types.

Interface Model: This setting is what model to use for a printers interface script. Most implementations use the model that the system selects based on the destination’s mode.

Default Form: Which form to use as the default for a new destination. A request will default to the form specified for its destination unless a different one is specified on the command line.

Default Print Control: Which print control to use by default on a new device.

File Break: Should OM Plus append a form feed at the end of each request. To always add a form feed, select “always.” To add a form feed only when one is not detected, select “conditional.”

Filter Program: Indicates the default user filter for a new destination.

Translation Table: Which translation table to use by default with a newly defined destination. These tables will translate one character into another. They will not translate strings.

Support Person: Indicates the default support person for a new destination.

Notifications: The default email address to notify in case of problems with a device.

Line Feed Convert: Should the OM Plus convert all line feeds to carriage return line feed.

Copy Break: Select whether or not to append a form feed between each copy in a request.

Filter Control File: Should the control file be added to the job before or after processing through a user filter?

PDF Capable: Should a new device be assumed to be capable of printing a PDF file?

Banner Page: Should an OM Plus banner page print before each request.


This screen can be used to define a set of Extensions to pass on to any newly created destination.
These can be used to configure additional functionality as needed for custom solutions.
