This section concerns you only if you previously have installed and configured Delegated Administrator and have customized the Delegated Administrator configuration.
If you have a customized configuration and you rerun the Delegated Administrator configuration program, config-commda, the properties in the configuration files are reset to their default values. These files are listed below, in Delegated Administrator Properties Files.
For information about how you can customize Delegated Administrator, see Chapter 4, Customizing Delegated Administrator.
You should preserve your customized configuration before you upgrade Delegated Administrator or rerun the Delegated Administrator configuration program for any other reason.
Delegated Administrator installs the following properties files:
Delegated Administrator utility
Delegated Administrator console
For the default location of the Delegated Administrator console files, see Original (Standard) Locations of the Configuration Files.
Delegated Administrator server
For the default location of the resource.properties file, see Original (Standard) Locations of the Configuration Files.
Back up the properties files you have customized.
For a list of the properties files, see Delegated Administrator Properties Files.
Run the config-commda program, as described in the following sections.
The remaining steps use the resource.properties file as an example. Repeat these steps for each file you have customized.
Edit the new resource.properties file created by the config-commda program, as follows:
Open the new resource.properties file.
Be sure to edit the resource.properties file in the original (standard) location in the Delegated Administrator installation directory, not the file deployed to the Web container used by the Delegated Administrator server.
Open your back-up copy of the resource.properties file.
Locate the properties that were customized in the back-up copy. Apply the customized values to the corresponding properties in the new resource.properties file.
Do not simply overwrite the new resource.properties file with the entire back-up copy. The new file may contain new properties created to support this release of Delegated Administrator.
Redeploy the edited resource.properties file to the Web container used by the Delegated Administrator server.
Before the change can take effect, you must run the script that deploys the customized resource.properties file to your Web container.
For instructions on how to deploy a customized properties file to a particular Web container, see To Deploy a Customized Configuration File.
