Updating a Component Property

You update a component property by referring to the component ID and the component property name that are displayed when you view the component hierarchy.

  To update a component property, go to EPM_ORACLE_INSTANCE/bin and run the following command:

epmsys_registry updateproperty #componentID/@componentProperty value

where componentID is the component's ID you found when you viewed the component hierarchy, componentProperty is the component property name you want to update, and value is the new value for the component property.

On UNIX, run:

epmsys_registry.sh updateproperty \#componentID/@componentProperty value

Component property names are case sensitive.

Tip:

Look for the component property names in the section called “Properties” when you view the component hierarchy. In addition, you can update the host a component is running on using the property name “host.”

For example, to change the port number for the Essbase Server with the component ID 99999 to port number 1425, enter the following command:

epmsys_registry updateproperty #99999/@agent_PortNumber 1425
