You can set properties that apply to all tools or are tool-specific. These properties serve as defaults for the command-line options they represent.
Use a text editor to open the default tools properties file
(config/tools.properties) or a different properties
If you use a file other than config/tools.properties, invoke the tool with the
--propertiesFilePathoption to specify the path to your properties file.
Set or change properties that apply to all tools.
Use the standard Java properties file format (name=value) to set properties. For example, the following properties define a set of LDAP connection parameters.
hostname=server1.example.com port=1389 bindDN=cn=Directory\ Manager bindPassword=secret baseDN=dc=example,dc=comNote:
Properties files do not allow quotation marks of any kind around values.
Escape spaces and special characters.
Whenever you specify a path, do not use ~ to refer to the home directory. The server does not expand the ~ value when read from a properties file.
Set or change properties that apply to specific tools.
Tool-specific properties start with the name of the tool followed by a period. These properties take precedence over properties that apply to all tools. The following example sets two ports: one that applies to all tools (
port=1389) and a tool-specific one that ldapsearch uses instead (
hostname=server1.example.com port=1389 ldapsearch.port=2389 bindDN=cn=Directory\ Manager
