Sun Java System Instant Messaging 7.2 Administration Guide

iim.conf Calendar Pop-up Configuration Parameters

When you install Instant Messaging, several configuration parameters used with the Calendar agent are added by default to iim.conf. You can also enable the Calendar agent and provide associated configuration information when you run the configure utility. However, you might want to manually configure pop-ups, for example, if you have customized the resource files for Instant Messenger. If you rerun configure, you will then need to redeploy the resource files. If you choose to manually configure the Instant Messaging server for Calendar pop-ups instead of running the configure utility, you will need to provide values for these parameters. See Chapter 1, Configuring Instant Messaging After Installation for information on the configure utility.

Table 16–1 lists the configuration parameters you will use to configure the Instant Messaging server and the Calendar agent in order to use Calendar pop-ups.
