Database Tasks : Creating a parameter file

Creating a parameter file

Parameter files are useful if you regularly use the same parameters when starting the OpenEdge RDBMS, or if you want to specify more parameters than can fit on the command line.
To create a parameter file:
1. Choose Utilities > Editor for Parameter Files. The Data Dictionary prompts you for the file you want to create.
2. Specify the filename. The Data Dictionary alphabetically lists all available startup parameters.
3. Specify which of the parameters you want in the file by entering yes, no, or the appropriate value, then press GO. The Data Dictionary prompts you for comments.
4. Enter any comments you want to include in the parameter file, and choose OK. The Data Dictionary window reappears.
