Changing Java startup parameters

Hello all

I am trying to modify a startup parameter from its default value:

-DrootDir=c://GDS//Configurations//

I am doing this using the Config tool. I save the change and then I restart the cluster.

When I check the developer trace of the server from the MMC I see that there is no change in the startup parameters. Of course the same is true within my Java code - System.getProperty(rootDir) still has the default value.

When I restart the Config Tool and view the startup parameters they are as I edited them previously, ie. they are the new values.

What do I have to do to make the change stay in place?

Thanks

Bill

    Hi Bill,

    see Karsten's answer in Changing the JDK - I think this should do the trick.

    Hope it helps

    Thanks Detlev,

    the link you posted generates an error on the server, though. I wasn't able to find this thread using the information available to me. Could you tell me a little more about the thread please? Then I could find it through the search function.

    Reward points will, of course, be forthcoming.

    Thanks

    Bill

    Hello all,

    to ensure completeness of the thread I add the solution that I found in the manual (of all places).

    The cause of this issue was clicking the "save" icon in the Config Tool. The correct way to save is to use the "File->Apply" from the menu.

    Thanks for your help Detlev.
