Distributing a Vault View in a WAN Environment

By default, an archive server announces itself over the network to clients using a broadcast interface over port 3030. Thus, the View Setup wizard or Administration tool can list the archive server automatically.

When a script or Active Directory policy distributes a vault view, the client uses the first archive server that is announced to it. This may not be the correct server, for example, in a replicated environment with multiple servers.

If you have problems using scripted views or policies over WAN or restricted networks, add the appropriate server manually using the Enterprise PDM Settings policy.
