Changing the PSM Properties File
/usr/local/ems9001/conf/common.properties file is read on startup and contains parameters that control certain
aspects of the PSM server behavior. This file is read-only
and should not be modified by the user.
To make changes to the parameters specified in this file, modify
/var/local/ems9001/conf/override-common.properties file instead. As the name suggests, the
override-common.properties file overrides the settings in the
common.properties file. On startup, the PSM server reads the
common.properties first, and then the
override-common.properties file typically contains only parameters that have different values
from their equivalents in the
common.properties file. If a parameter appears in both files, the parameter value
override-common.properties file takes effect.
/var/local/ems9001/conf/override-common.properties file survives PSM server software upgrades. You do not
need to manually reinstate the property changes after the upgrade.
and, by correlation, the
override-common.properties file may contain both user-settable and system-level parameters
that affect the behavior of the PSM server. Only those attributes
explicitly described in this guide should be changed. Changing any
other attributes may have unintended consequences, and must only be
performed under the guidance of Juniper Networks Support.
All changes to the
/var/local/ems9001/conf/override-common.properties file should be tracked with Git. See Using Git to Track override-common.properties for information
on how to do this.
