This document details how to install SAPSPrint on select Print Servers to allow for printing from various SAP applications.
Background SAP applications have specific requirements to map internally created queues to Windows print queues, and the SAPSPrint service allows this functionality.
Perform the following on windows print servers.
Note: How to download installation file
SAP Software Download Center >>Support Packages and Patches >> Search for Support Packages and Patches : Search for SAPSPRINT
Select Installation path and press Next
Provide port number
NOTE: If the LPD Service is installed under Print Management (Windows TCP/IP Printing), that service defaults to 515. The SAPSPrint port will need to be changed in that scenario.
Installation is finished
You will able to see new Window Service created as below.
NOTE: This starts immediately after install. Local System gives SAPSPrint access only to locally defined printers. If there is a requirement to have access to machines not defined on the print server (eg. Remote network, printers locally connected to client, etc) then this service will need to start under a domain account.
I would also like to add that there are also command line options that you can leverage to make the install easier/faster if you are required to install these on numerous print servers in your Windows environment. I have used the /noDLG option and the entire install is just a progress bar.
