    Hi Ron,

    As promised, here are the comments on discrepancies still remaining
    in the latest Printer MIB draft, from Sean McGarigle (Xerox). They
    all look valid to me. The last one (extensive addition to the
    section on changes from RFC 1759) looks like it could be flattened
    to a bullet that said something like:

        - changed most enumerations to textual conventions and therefore
          changed the SYNTAX of many objects from Printer MIB v1 to
          specify appropriate textual conventions

    Cheers,

    Hi Ira,

    Here's what I put together regarding PRT MIB V2 problems...you may want to
    filter these.

    Regards,

    Sean

    Changes suggested for Printer MIB V2 HLD Draft 08 - Sean McGarigle 08/15/01

    1. Table of Contents, Page 3: Should add entries for GeneralV2,
    AlertTableV2, ChannelV2, AlertTrap and AlertTime groups.

    2. PrtGeneralEntry, Page 66: Change group membership labels in accord
    with new defined groups:

    Change "label" for prtGeneralPrinterName and prtGeneralPrinterSerialNumber
    objects from "General" to "GeneralV2".
    Change "label" for prtAlertCriticalEvents and prtAlertAllEvents objects from
    "Alert" to "AlertTableV2".

    3. prtGeneralGroup OBJECT-GROUP Definition, Page 138: Remove
    prtGeneralPrinterName
          and prtGeneralSerialNumber objects.

    3.a. Question: The prtGeneralGroup definition of page 138 also includes the
    following items:

    a) prtGeneralConfigChanges
    b) prtGeneralCurrentLocalization
    c) prtGeneralReset
    d) prtCoverDescription,
    e) prtCoverStatus
    f) prtLocalizationLanguage
    g) prtLocalizationCountry
    h) prtLocalizationCharacterSet
    i) prtStorageRefIndex
    j) prtDeviceRefIndex

    Of the above, only items (a) through (c) are referenced in the general group
    description of page 66. If the other items (d) through (j) are members of
    the General group, shouldn't they be referenced in the page 66 description
    (perhaps as members of their associated "general" tables)? If they are not
    legitimate members of the group, shouldn't they be removed from the page 138
    definition?

    4. prtAlertTableGroup OBJECT-GROUP Definition, Page 142: Remove
    prtAlertCriticalEvents, and prtAlertAllEvents objects.

    5. Print Job Delivery Channel Group Description, Pages 110 through 118.
    The definition of the prtChannelInformation object appears within this group
    description and is treated as a member of the group. From the context, it is
    not clear herein, that the prtChannelInformation object is no longer a part
    of the prtChannel Group.

    6. prtChannelGroup OBJECT-GROUP Description, Page 141: Remove
    prtChannelInformation object from this group.

    7. prtAlertIndex Object Description, Page 127. Second sentence in
    description should read: "This is an incrementing integer starting from one
    every time the printer is reset.

    8. Section 4, Differences from RFC 1759, Pages 28 through 30: Since
    this is supposed to be a summary of all changes from 1759, it should include
    all significant changes.

    Delete:

    Standalone statement "Added the Input Switching Group". (It is covered under
    paragraph beginning "- Created five OBJECT-GROUPS...")

    Add:

    Change to appendix C to reflect addition of dimensions (3.875 x 8.75 inches)

    codes.
