How to simplify printer setup for purchase documents

We're running SAP on Oracle on a Solaris 10 platform. our SAP host is actually a virtual machine on the global solaris 10 domain.

When we now need to change the printer (determination) for a purchase order we need to perform the following sequence of actions.

1) Create the device on the global solaris 10 domain

2) Define the printer on OS level on the solaris 10 zone that is the SAP host.

3) Define the printer via SPAD

4) maintain a message determination for specific combinations "purchase group - printer" , "etc via t-code MN05.

We're also working on citrix and SAP has recently introduced a new printing acess method "G" next to "F".

So I was hoping to have a simplified setup in which we can define the printers simply from within SAP and use frontend printing.

This front-end alike printing might work well for on demand list printing but I''m afraid there is no solution alternative for our current way of working for printing purchase documents ???

Or can we print PO's also on the default printer of the user which might be a genric local frontend printer (access method "F" of "G") ???

Best regards

As I think the printing is processed in update task I guess there is no alternative to the way you already do...
