To distribute the vault view using login scripts, launch the View Setup wizard with triggers to automate view installations.

Trigger Description
/a Creates a view setup file.
< path to cvs-file > Opens the view setup file, letting you attach using the information from the file.
/q Perform attach silently without showing wizard. Works only in combination with /s switch or a .cvs file.
/s {<VaultID>} Find the Vault ID by selecting the properties of the vault in the Administration tool. If multiple archive servers host the vault, see Distributing a Vault View in a WAN Environment.
