Service Registry 3.1 Administration Guide

Configuring Service Registry for a Non-Default Application Server Installation

The default location for installing Application Server is /opt/SUNWappserver/appserver on Solaris OS and /opt/sun/appserver on Linux and HP-UX systems. If you installed Application Server in a different location, you must edit a copy of the file before you configure Service Registry.

ProcedureTo Edit a Copy of the File

  1. Change to the ServiceRegistry-base/install directory.

  2. Copy the file to a secure location and rename it.

    Use a command like the following:

    cp $HOME/hidden_dir/
  3. Change the permissions on the properties file to make it writable.

    Use a command like the following:

    chmod 600 $HOME/hidden_dir/
  4. Open the file in a text editor.

  5. Find the commented-out definition of the property appserver.root.dir.

  6. Remove the comment character (#) and replace the property definition with the actual location of Application Server.

  7. Save and close the file.
