The Directory Proxy Server provides default properties files that apply to all command-line utilities used in client requests. A default properties file,, is located in the <server-root>/config directory.

If you place a custom properties file that has a different file name as in this default location, specify the path by using the --propertiesFilePath option. If you make changes to the file, you do not need the --propertiesFilePath option. See the examples in the next section.
