HP Web Jetadmin - Importing a Configuration from a File

A CSV (comma separated value) file can be created and then imported into HP Web Jetadmin for the purpose of device configuration. This provides a way to configure a fleet of devices with unique parameters that would otherwise have to be configured one device at a time.

CSV files can easily be created by exporting data from a spreadsheet or word processing program.

Note:

The devices must be discovered first.

Here is an example of a device configuration scenario:

  • 30 devices exist: 16.24.1.26-16.24.1.56

  • Asset number assignments are required: Abc10040-Abc10070

  • Assignments are made respective to IP address sequence

The following table is an example of the CSV file for this device configuration scenario.

Example CSV file for a device configuration scenario

IP Addr

Port

Asset Number

16.24.1.26

1

Abc10040

16.24.1.27

1

Abc10041

16.24.1.28

1

Abc10042

16.24.1.29

1

Abc10043

16.24.1.30

1

Abc10044

Note:

The first column is always the device identification, which can be an IP address, MAC address, or IP hostname. The second column is always the port. For HP devices, the port is 1, unless a device is attached to a multiport print server. For third-party devices, the port must be <Not supported>, which is case-sensitive. If you specify anything else for third-party devices, the import fails.

Once the file is created and stored to disk on the client desktop; the user can import the file contents into HP Web Jetadmin using Configure Devices.

The CSV file contains header text for each device property to be configured. Once the user has browsed and uploaded the file a Map Headers control appears. The customer specific header text can be matched with the corresponding device property.

The following are the columns headers for a CSV file. The first two columns identify the devices to configure. If HP Web Jetadmin did not discover these devices before the CSV file is imported, the devices are not configured.

  • Column 1: Device Identifier (either IP address, hardware address (MAC address), or IP hostname)

  • Column 2: Port (always just “Port”)

  • Column 3 through nn: User-specified device settings. The following device settings can be imported:

    • Access Control List

    • Asset Number

    • Company Name

    • Default Copier Copies

    • Default Printer Copies

    • Device Location

    • Device Name

    • Get Community Name

    • Job Timeout

    • Set Community Name

    • System Contact

    • System Location

    • System Name

    • TCP Idle Timeout

    • HTTP Idle Timeout

    • Any user-defined settings that are specified by using the Tools > Options > Device Management > Configuration > User Defined option.

Once the mapping is configured, HP Web Jetadmin displays the data headers and device status. Devices which were previously discovered and successfully matched are shown in the list; any devices in the file which were not successfully matched are counted as “Unresolved devices”.

Only the settings listed above can be imported from a file. If a setting contains a comma, quotations must be used around that particular setting. For example, the following line can be used to set values of "Chicago, IL, USA" and "Building 5, Floor 3":

16.24.1.26,1,“Chicago, IL, USA”,“Building 5, Floor 3”
