  3. Create your environment with the application connecting the nevisProxy and your application servers to each other, see the chapter Configuration.
  4. Create the key material for your realm .
  5. To allow nevisAdmin to remotely control your server, install the nevisAgents on every server hosting a NEVIS component. See the chapter nevisAgent software installation on how to install nevisAgents with the necessary keys.
