This HP Driver Preconfiguration Support Guide describes HP driver preconfiguration, the tools to use it, and the printing environments in which it can be employed. Three distinct tools for using HP Driver Configuration are described in detail:
● The HP Driver Configuration Editor
● The HP Web JetAdmin Driver Configuration Plugin
The HP Customization Utility/Silent Installer
HP driver preconfiguration is a software architecture and set of tools that permits HP software to be customized and distributed in managed corporate printing environments. Using HP driver preconfiguration, information technology (IT) administrators in corporate and enterprise environments can preconfigure the printing and device defaults for HP printer drivers before installing the drivers in the network environment.
For instance, suppose a company has purchased several HP Color LaserJet 5500 printers that are to be shared among several workgroups. To keep printing costs to a minimum, management wants all of the print queues to print on both sides of the paper (duplex) by default. To save costs further, they wish to restrict the ability of certain groups to print in color, thereby minimizing toner consumption. Several different printer servers are in use, each of which has one or more queues to the new devices. Some users can print directly to the new printers over the network, but IT wants to apply the same driver configuration to those print queues.
