Make Xerox Color to print in Black and white by default

We like to make Xerox DocuColor 252 to print Black and White by default on all print job.

I first went to printer IP interface, change the PS in PDL configuraiton to GrayScale in color mode. It did not achive what I wanted.

The better approach is to configure it on the driver of printer server level, and clean up the drivers on client level:

  • Go Printer Properties on printer server

  • Advanced tab, printing default, make necessary changes, here we set colorwise to Grayscale

  • Go to Printing Preferences, change colorwise to Grayscale too

  • Open a notepad on print server, print and check the preference of that printer to see if the change maintained

  • On Client: Remove all printer drives for that model. then

  • On Client: go to  Print Server Properties, remove that printer from Drivers tab and Ports tab

  • Re-add the printer driver on client

  • Open Notepad on Client and check the printer preferences
