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.

After you install an Archiver host, you need to add an Archiver service an apply a license to it, as explained in the following procedure.

Note: This procedure is only required if you do not have the Archiver service installed.

  1. Go to ADMIN > Services.
