BI4 Crystal Report Schedule - How To Select Printer?

BI4 (Crystal Server 2011, actually) now presents a drop-down list, rather than a text box, when scheduling to print to the non-default printer. Problem is... there aren't any printers in the drop-down list!

Why not -- how do I get printers installed on the server to show up in that list?

    Found a resolution to this. It appears to be undocumented.

    Within the CMC, select Applications -> Crystal Reports Configuration -> Printer List

    You may add printer names, which are then tied to actual server printer definitions. The printer drop-down in the InfoView Crystal Report Print Settings page is then populated!

    Thanks to Henry Kam of SAP for helping out with this!!!

    Bumping this up on the forum.

    Has no one really tried to schedule to printer in BI4/Crystal Server 2011?
