By default, View cannot access documents in the local file system. Additionally, by default, it cannot access UNC paths to Windows shared folders that contain dollar symbols ($). You must enable View to access documents in these directories by using the HPE IDOL Server configuration file.
Open the HPE IDOL Server configuration file in a text editor.
[Viewing] section, or create one if it does not exist.
ViewLocalDirectoriesCSVs parameter to a comma-separated list of directories that contain documents that you want to allow the View service to access. You must list the full paths. For example:
View can access these directories and any subdirectories, and it can convert documents within these directories to HTML for display.
To allow the View service to access only the listed directories, set
