However, there is one critical "default tray" is no longer available in the last step of adding printer, compared to other existing CUPS driver such as HP LaserJet 4200. As a result, I am assuming that the following command to address different tray would work the same as in Solaris:
>> lp -d <queue_name> -o landscape -o tray3 report.pdf
>> lp -d <queue_name> -o landscape -o lower report.pdf

>> However, only a blank page was printed out to manual tray 1 on A4 paper even though I wanted to print to A5 Landscape paper on tray 3 or lower.
>> Please advice what is the correct Red Hat lp syntax to address individual tray including orientation. The report.pdf has the correct A5 dimension (5.82 x 8.26 inch).
>> I have attached this report.pdf and would appreciate if you could explain why a blank page is been printed out. It had been generated by JetPCL from report.pcl.
