Just to tidy up the thread i have since decided to move on from the Linux and PyKota installation due the amount of issues i was running into and the time scale i have. I decided to give Paper Cut a try and it does what i need without the issue of needing kerberised print queues. Instead of monitoring 1 set of queues on one server, Paper cut allows me to monitor 2 sets of queues on individual servers but hosting the quota system in one location.
Thanks for all the help though. It was most appreciated and if nothing else, it was a great Linux experience and certainly helped me understand it a bit better. I will most likely look at implementing something on a Linux server in the future, maybe a File server since it seemed pretty quick and easy to get this part up and running.
It's always handy getting used to the system and how it works before starting a test, albeit step-by-step.
