About this task

The Scheduled Reports feature in SMP allows you to send report output directly to a printer connected to or accessible from the Site Director ADS/ADX . Follow the steps in this section.

Procedure

  1. On the ADS/ADX computer, create a new Windows operating system user using the standard procedure specific to your particular Windows operating system.
  2. Restart the computer and log in as the new user you created in Step 1.
  3. Follow the steps in Setting up a local or network printer on an ADS/ADX.
  4. If a restart is required, log in as the new user you created in Step 1.
  5. Set the printer you added in Step 3 as the default printer for the new user.
  6. Print a test page to verify that printing works for the new user.
  7. If the new user account has Administrator privileges, go to Step 8.

    If the new user account does not have Administrator privileges, log out and then log in with a user account that has Administrator privileges. This action enables you to perform the remaining steps in this section.

  8. Open Control Panel on the ADS/ADX computer and select Administrative Tools > Services.

    Select Control Panel > System and Security > Administrative Tools > Services. Click Yes to continue if the User Account Control prompt appears.

  9. In the Services window, right-click Metasys III Action Queue and select Properties.
  10. On the Log On tab, click This account.
  11. Enter the new user’s name in the This account field and the new user’s password in the Password and Confirm password fields.
  12. Click OK.
  13. In the Services window, right-click Metasys III Action Queue and select Restart.
  14. Test the printer by creating a scheduled report in the ADS/ADX , that is configured to go to that printer.
    Note: If you do not have a valid default printer set, an error message displays Print Error (263).
