Command and Utility Reference : ASCONFIG


Displays the property settings associated with an AppServer configuration and checks that the syntax and values in the file are valid. You must run the ASCONFIG utility locally on the machine on which the AppServer is running. The utility does not run across the network.


Operating system
asconfig [
[[ -name AppServer-name]
[ -propfile path-to-properties-file ]
[ -validate ]
]| -help ]
-name AppServer-name
Specifies which existing AppServer configuration to examine. The name must match the name of an existing AppServer configuration in the specified properties file. If you do not specify an AppServer, the ASCONFIG utility analyzes all AppServer configurations defined in the properties file specified by the -propfile parameter.
-propfile path-to-properties-file
Specifies a filename or pathname to a file that contains the property settings to be validated, for example, If a filename or pathname is not specified, it defaults to the installation version of the file, such as:
*%DLC%\properties\ in Windows.
*$DLC/properties/ on UNIX.
Checks the syntax and values of property settings defined in the specified properties file.
Displays command-line help.


Never needed if you always use OpenEdge Management or OpenEdge Explorer.


The following command validates the syntax and views the configurations of all AppServer instances defined within the file located in the current working directory:
asconfig -propfile -validate
