New DocuShare installations—After completing the DocuShare installation and site licensing using the instructions provided in the appropriate chapter of the DocuShare Installation Guide (available for download from https://docushare.xerox.com/doug), perform the procedure below.

1. Stop DocuShare.

· 16–32 GB RAM: <DSHome>\bin\idolsetup.bat idol_large.config
