    Hi Harry,
     
    PrinterStatus is the status ONLY of an IPP-like Printer object,
    not the non-existent Device object (which is what you want).
     
    I suggest I machine translate HR MIB and MIB-II and add
    appropriate elements to the PrtView.xsd (Printer MIB View)
    schema (which already has the related Printer MIB status
    elements mapped).
     
    Without a Device object in SM, there's no good home for
    these things. Trying to smash the abstract Printer object
    to make it "device-ish" is the wrong modelling road.
     
    Cheers,
    - Ira

    Hi Harry,
     
    PrinterStatus is a group of IPP-only printer elements. There is
    presently no support in the SM/1.0 schema for Printer MIB or
    HR MIB or MIB-II elements. Yes - it needs a new schema.
     
    Cheers,

    I looked through PrinterStatus.xsd and hoped to find something that maps
    directly to hrPrinterDetectedErrorState from RFC 2790. Is this what is meant
    to go in PrinterStateWKV? If not, I'd like to see if we can agree to put
    hrPrinterDetectedErrorState into PrinterStatus.xsd (or must it be part of
    some schema that maps the HR MIB?)
