How Do I Cancel a Print Job in AIX?

To cancel just 1 print job, first identify the job #, by typing the following (We’ll use lp1 as an example):

lpstat -plp1

(make note of the # listed in the “Job” column; we’ll assume it’s “123” for this example)

Type in:

cancel 123

To cancel all print jobs on lp1, type the following:

cancel lp1

To cancel print jobs from the Universe spooler, Find the job # with this command:

usa -j  or usa -p lp1

To cancel one job (i.e. job # 123),  type in

usm -k 123

To delete all jobs in the Universe spooler for lp1:

usm -k -p lp1
