It may be desirable to define additional servers if user has more than one server or wish to use parallel processing.
Servers should be created after consultation with the Email server administrator.
The VenvDbaseURL parameter in the Vantage.init file should be configured appropriately as per the environment:
The value for this vantage parameter should be in below format:
jdbc:oracle:thin:@< server name | IP address >:< port >:< Oracle SID>
|Note: The Hostname and IP Address are mutually exclusive fields. If user enters a value in one field, the other is deactivated and vice versa.
Deleting the entry reactivates both fields. Where no IP address is entered, the hostname is converted through lookup or DNS.
To test the connectivity of the email server configured in eSetting, go to actions and click on ‘Test Connectivity’.
A dialogue box indicating the test results will appear. The same test connectivity option is available for the mailbox created under the email server.
