Printing on macOS Sonoma

OVERVIEW

Addresses a prevalence of issues related to macOS Sonoma suddenly halting printing on non-AD bound machines.

 

DETAILS

To resolve this recurring issue, I recommend starting anew by initiating a "Reset Printing" process. This comprehensive step removes ALL printers and queues. Along with clearing all Keychain entries associated with printing, ensure that the PaperCut client is installed and operational.

Follow the provided instructions diligently. When specifying the URL for the queue, make the following adjustment:

Change: smb://sfuprint-p.mps.sfu.ca/SFU_Print_non_AD_auth

To: smb://sfuprint-p.mps.sfu.ca/SFU_Print_non_AD_auth?encryption=no

This adjustment should help mitigate the printing interruptions experienced previously.

It is one continuous line, without breaks. After adding the printer, you can perform a test print, and the printer authentication prompt should appear. I utilized "ADSFU\<username>" and encountered no issues.

Next is Papercut authentication

Hope this helps.
