For the printers that support PCL but not PDF, you can use ghostscript. This worked for us a couple of years ago on V5R4 although we do not have it setup on V7.1.

Subject: print a PDF from the IFS to a network printer

If I have a PDF file stored in the IFS, and 100 network attached laser printers on campus, is there a way using CL or RPG or Java or Qshell, to send that PDF document to one of those printers and have it print? I can open the document and print it to these printers but I want to do this without any human intervention, and without any PC in the middle. I could probably setup a PC running client access and send it remote commands to open the PDF from the IFS and print but I would prefer a totally native solution.
