In order to add an Archiver service, ensure that you have installed an Archiver host on which you want to run the Archiver service. See "Step 1: Add or Update Host" topic in the Host and Services Getting Started Guide for the procedure that explains how to add a host.

Do the following steps to edit the Archiver service:

  1. Go to (Admin) > Services.
    The Services panel is displayed.
