Server Configuration Parameters

The server configuration parameter information on a PPM instance comes from the following three different sources:

  • KNTA_SERVER_PARAM_DEF_NLS table

  • server.conf file

  • KNTA_APPSERVER_PROPERTIES table

The KNTA_SERVER_PARAM_DEF_NLS table (definitions table) contains all of the server configuration parameters and their default values. The server.conf file contains a subset of the server configuration parameters in the KNTA_SERVER_PARAM_DEF_NLS table. If you specify the value for a parameter directly in the server.conf file, either manually or from the Administration Console, then that value supersedes the default value for the parameter in the KNTA_SERVER_PARAM_DEF_NLS table.

The KNTA_APPSERVER_PROPERTIES table contains the server configuration parameters and values that the PPM Server ultimately uses. Parameter values in the server.conf file are compared with those in the KNTA_SERVER_PARAM_DEF_NLS table. If a non-default value is specified for a parameter in the server.conf file, then the parameter is assigned that value in the KNTA_APPSERVER_PROPERTIES table. If a parameter exists only in the KNTA_SERVER_PARAM_DEF_NLS table, then the parameter is assigned the default value in the KNTA_APPSERVER_PROPERTIES table.
