Editing the server.config file

Editing the server.config file

The <foglight_home>/config/server.config file contains parameters for port settings, virtual memory, command-line options, and server federation. You can edit the file using a text editor. Values within quotation marks can be edited.

The server.config file includes properties for individual database connection parameters like host name, port, etc. The Management Server uses those parameters to construct a JDBC URL at runtime. In some complex cases, like connecting to the Oracle RAC, these basic parameters are insufficient and a custom JDBC URL had to be manually entered into the oracle-ds.xml file.

Starting with Foglight, the server.config file allows you to specify the full JDBC URL (by editing the server.database.url property, which is by default commented out), removing the need for users to edit *-ds.xml files.

Enabling High Availability mode after installation

If you want to run Foglight in High Availability (HA) mode but did not select this option during installation, you can enable HA mode after installation by editing the file server.config. For more information, see the Foglight High Availability Field Guide.

Changing external database credentials

Use the following method to reconfigure Foglight to start up with a new database password. The password can be updated in the server.config file.

Open the server.config file.

Uncomment and set the server.database.secureconn attribute in the server.config file to true, as shown below.
