Sun Java System Instant Messaging 7.2 Administration Guide

Changing Instant Messaging Server and Multiplexor Configuration Parameters

Instant Messaging stores configuration parameters in the iim.conf file. For a complete list of configuration parameters, see Appendix A, Instant Messaging Configuration Parameters in iim.conf.

To change configuration parameters, manually edit the configuration parameters and values in the iim.conf file, then refresh the Instant Messaging server configuration. If you change a multiplexor parameter, you only need to refresh the multiplexor as follows:

imadmin refresh multiplexor

For a complete list of parameters and their values, see Appendix A, Instant Messaging Configuration Parameters in iim.conf.

ProcedureTo Change Configuration Parameters

  1. Change to the im-cfg-base directory.

    See Instant Messaging Server Directory Structure for instructions on locating im-cfg-base.

  2. Edit iim.conf using a text editor.

  3. Save your changes.

  4. Refresh the configuration using imadmin.

    For example:

    imadmin refresh

    Note –

    If you change the multiplexor listen port (iim_mux.listenport) or the multiplexor host, update the im.html or the im.jnlp files accordingly. Failure to do so disables Instant Messenger from connecting to the server. For more information, see Chapter 15, Managing Instant Messenger.
