Among the knowledge base I have and especially the new I share with my students in my high impact sap basis training this experiment is one of the most important one of all. Will it not be good for you to know how to create a output device in an sap system for front-end printing. I have taken the necessary care and attention to see that you will learn this topic by reading this article. I have also added an extra value by mentioning, Creating output device for front-end printing is another important topic within the sap basis training course.
What is the front-end printing:
Users of an SAP system can print documents in their local printers using front-end printing concept in an SAP system. It is irrelevant that the printer is physically connected to their computer or it is connected over a computer network. The local printers do not need to be defined individually in an SAP system. SAP Basis administrator need to create a representative output device for each operating system platform.
Control technology with access method G is available for front-end-printing from release 4.6C. Access method F was used for this purpose previously. Access method G offers the advantage is that, front-end printing using SAP GUI for java can be setup irrespective of the platform.
The process of Front-end printing is also similar to other output devices, which also uses a spool work process in an SAP application server. To avoid the conflicts between regular and font-end print requests, the profile parameter rdisp/wp_no_spo_Fro_max is used to define the maximum number of spool work processes for font-end printing for each SAP instance.
You can define a spool server specifically for front-end printing by using the profile parameter rspo/local_print/server to the required server name.
