XMPie or VI sampling

Jump to solution

How do you sample every 25 or so from a VI job? Since you are really only printing one copy, other than pulling one from the menu, how do you get one to come out regularly?

There is a script that you need to ask your analyst to install. I have it and I still can't figure it out.

 

I posted this question to this forum a long time ago but did not get an answer.

 

What we do is a Printer/Sample Current Job.

Re: XMPie or VI sampling

I am responding to this old thread in case someone searches and finds this issue looking for a solution.

 

The script that Steve mentions is setSpecialSample and it is found in the /opt/XRXnps/bin directory of the FreeFlow Print Server. When you enable it it changes the behavior of the sample function from sample every x sets to sample every x sheets. This will enable sampling for VI files.

 

To enable this feature:

1. Open a terminal window on your FFPS system.

2. become super user by typing "su", pressing enter and entering the appropriate password.

3. enter the following commands at the # prompt:

# cd /opt/XRXnps/bin

# ./setSpecialSample 1

4. Restart the FFPS software

 

To set the sampling behavior back to its default setting follow the above instructions and replace the 1 with a 0 in the ./setSpecialSample command.
