This section provides the steps for standard PPM Server configuration and all of the settings required for a typical PPM installation.
To configure the PPM Server:
From a DOS or UNIX command line, run the
kConfig.shscript (located in the
<PPM_Home>/bindirectory) as follows.
To run the script in graphical mode, type:
sh ./kConfig.sh -i swing
Note: (UNIX only) Run this utility in an X Window session.
To run the script in console mode, type:
sh ./kConfig.sh -i console
Follow the configuration wizard prompts to complete the configuration.
Specify a value for every parameter required for your system environment. To determine the correct value to provide for a parameter, move your cursor over the parameter name and display the tooltip text. For more information, see PPM Configuration Parameters.
All confidential information (such as passwords) is hidden and encrypted before it is stored.
Do not change default values unless you are sure that the default value does not meet the requirements of your organization.
Note: Always use forward slashes (/) as a path separator, regardless of your operating system environment. PPM automatically uses the correct path separators when communicating with Windows, but expects to read only forward slashes on the configuration file.
Specify any required parameters on the Custom Parameters page.
If you have no custom parameters to add, leave Custom Parameters empty. If you require custom parameters, see Defining Custom and Special Parameters for instructions on how to specify them.
The configuration wizard writes the configuration parameters to the
server.conffile and generates other files that the PPM Server requires.
Stop, and then restart the server.
For information about how to stop and start the server, see Starting and Stopping the PPM Server on a Single-Server System.
Note: You can also modify parameters directly in the server configuration file, which is described in PPM Configuration Parameters.
If you modify parameters directly, be sure to run the script
kUpdateHtml.shafter you make your changes.
