I am using Cups-1.2.9, and the print driver is the LaserJet PCL 6, additionally, it didn't work with the LaserJet PCL 4/5 driver - we have tested both.
The command I am using is: sudo lpadmin -p $PRINTER_NAME -o job-quota-period=86400 -o job-page-limit=1
With no luck on the printer with either driver.
