36.3 Setting Up the DVA

After you install the DVA, you must make it available in your GroupWise system by creating an object for it and adding that DVA object to at least one POA.

36.3.1 Creating a DVA Object

After you install and start the DVA, you must create a DVA object, so that you can add the DVA to one or more POAs.

  1. In the GroupWise Administration Console, click System > Document Viewer Agent.

  2. Click New to set up a new DVA.

  3. In the Name field, specify a unique and descriptive name for the new DVA object.

    Do not use invalid characters.

  4. In the Address field, specify the IP address or DNS hostname of the server where the DVA is running.

  5. (Conditional) If the POA that the DVA will communicate with uses SSL, select Enable SSL.

    For more information, see Securing the Post Office with SSL Connections to the POA.

  6. Click OK to create the new DVA object and add it to the list of DVAs in your GroupWise system.

  7. Continue with Adding a DVA to a POA.

36.3.2 Adding a DVA to a POA

You can add a single DVA to one, two, or three POAs.

  1. In the GroupWise Administration Console, browse to and click the POA where you want to add the DVA.

  2. Click the Document Viewer Agent tab.

  3. Click Add Document Viewer Agent, and then specify or select the DVA in the drop-down list.

  4. Click Save, and then click Close.

  5. (Optional) Repeat Step 1 through Step 4 to add the DVA to additional POAs as needed.

The same result can be obtained by using POA startup switches. For more information, see Configuring the POA with Multiple DVAs for Indexing.
