Need help with lpadmin

Hi all,
My name is amit & i just joined this community. I m working on linux since last one year. So u can say i m an L1 linux user.. I have a very strange query ie:

I have one doubt regarding lpadmin's two options ie -o job-quota-period=604800 & -o job-page-limit=2. If i install any printer & configure these options for the same, ie not working. Even its not updating /etc/cups/printers.conf file. I tried hp laserjet 9040 printer or generic text only. After going through lot of forums i found two solutions ie
1. Printer should support that option
2. Its a bug with cups 1.2 version. We should go for 1.3.9 or newer version.
I tried 2nd option, but having no luck. Checked options of printer too using lpoptions command, but no luck.
Can u pls give m idea on this topic. I am really stuck with this & my project too.
Please let me know any further i/ps required from my side..

Welcome to LQ!!

Remove "Very Urgent" from the title and perhaps add "lpadmin", and you may get more responses.

I'll report to be moved to Software.
