AIX-based printing and PDF file generation



looking to find a best practices approach to scheduled printing of pdf BOXI reports hosted by in an AIX environment to a Windows AD secured network printer.

Looking at three possible approaches:

1. AIX-based printing: lpr queue with some ghostscript translation to postscript

2. Windows-based printing via SAMBA: AIX based printing using samba services

3. Windows-based printing via FTP: transfer the file out from the AIX server and script the printing using Control-M

Leaning towards #3 presently. Expert guidance would be greatly appreciated.
