Guidelines for editing the properties file
When editing the file without OpenEdge Management or OpenEdge Explorer, note the following:
*You should not directly change the values in the file unless you have a complete understanding of how the changes affect components. When possible, always use OpenEdge Management or OpenEdge Explorer to make all changes to this file.
Note: You can use the mergeprop utility installed with OpenEdge to manually edit the file. For information on using mergeprop, see OpenEdge Getting Started: Installation and Configuration.
*Always make a copy of this file, edit the copy, and verify the result before replacing the original with your edited copy.
*For complete definitions of all the properties and detailed information on how to set them, see the file, as well as the comments included in the properties file itself. Both files reside in the properties directory.
The file consists of a hierarchical structure of configuration entities, where parent entities provide configuration information that you can override or extend in each child entity. Each configuration entity has a name that begins the entity definition, and the definition contains configuration settings for one or more products or product instances.
* AppServer entries in the properties file
* Server startup parameters
