					SETTING UP A NEW OASIS PRINTER
(October 5, 2006)

Oasis printing requires a network addressable printer. Please note that JetDirect cards are NOT
reliable and the Data Center does not recommend their use for network connectivity. The Data
Center currently recommends Lexmark printers which are connected and configured in the lpd print
server. The current models are: Lexmark T620DN or T622DN (N=built in networking, and
D=duplex). These currently cost about $1100.

The Lexmark web site address is:
http://www.lexmark.com/lexmark/sequentialem/home/0,6959,204816596_848682342_0_en,00.html

Printers must also be assigned a static IP address. To get a static IP address you must submit a
work order via the iRequest application at: http://www.oxsigen.com/ucop/index.htm

Be sure to specify in the work order that this is for a network addressable printer that you want
added to the lpd queue (for access to UCLA's OASIS system among other things). You must also
supply the printer manufacturer and model number as well as the room number/location of the
printer. They will assign it an lpd queue name which reflects this room location.

When this has been done (printer ordered/received/installed, IP address/lpd queue name
assigned), you can continue by contacting UCLA to establish a remote printer id (RMT number) for
use in Oasis/RDS. You will need to provide the server IP address/name NOT the IP address of the
printer itself. The servers run on the unix operating system and IP information is as follows:
     for the Franklin Bldg:                  lpd.ucop.edu
     for Benefits in Kaiser Bldg:            benlpd.ucop.edu
     for Kaiser Bldg other than Benefits: lpd.ucop.edu

To obtain lpd server information in other UCOP buildings, please include the request for this
information in the work order submittal.

UCLA provides an online form for submitting a new printer request at:
http://www.ais.ucla.edu/Access/VPSconnect.htm
You may also contact the UCLA AIS HelpDesk at: helpdesk@ais.ucla.edu or (310) 206-6951.

When the printer is set up and accessing the OASIS application, please send the following
information to infohelp@ucop.edu:

        Department contact
        Department Name
        Building and Room location of printer
        Printer Mfr Name and Model Number
        IP address of printer (e.g., 128.48.112.12)
        lpd queue id at UCOP (e.g., uf12311a)
        OASIS printer id (e.g., RMT3817 )
