I think we looking for the solution to a problem, that on closer
examination, doesn't exist.
That is, a printer template should contain uri-security-supported, but not
printer-uri-supported. If I am correct, then there is no problem of parallel
attributes to solve.
A printer template should not have the printer-uri-supported attribute in it
for two reasons:
1) a printer entry represents an association with a single printer-uri, not
collection of printer-uri's.
2) if a printer entry contains a printer-uri, such as in
then it links to other directory entries and admin becomes very
if a printer uri changes. SLP is presumably not aware of such links.
So the simple solution is that each printer entry in an SLP DA has a
uri-security-supported attribute whose values are for the associated
printer-uri only. Thus a printer whose 'name' attribute is 'foo' may have
two DA entries, each with a different associated printer-uri and different
