Updating the config.properties file

Use this procedure to modify the config.properties file on the BMC Server Automation client.

To update the config.properties file

  1. Open the config.properties file. By default, this file is initially stored in the following location:
    • (UNIX):
      /opt/bmc/bladelogic/NSH/br/config.properties
    • (Windows):
      C:\Program Files\BMC Software\BladeLogic\NSH\br\config.properties
      When a user runs the console for the first time, a copy of config.properties is placed in the following user-specific location:
    • (UNIX):
      <userHomeDirectory>/.bladelogic/config.properties
    • (Windows):
      <userHomeDirectory>\Application Data\BladeLogic\config.properties
      If you are setting up an AD/Kerberos environment that many users are sharing (for example, a terminal server) and you have already run the BMC Server Automation Console, you should modify config.properties in both locations — its initial location and in your own user-specific location.
  2. Set the following entries to the values shown below. If an entry does not already exist in the config.properties file, add it at the end of the file.

    Entry

    Value

    java.security.auth.login.config=

    <path>/blclient_login.conf
    In this entry, <path> is the full path to the blclient_login.conf file. For Windows paths, use forward slashes as path delimiters, such as

    
    C\:\\Program Files/BMC Software
    /BladeLogic/NSH/br/blclient_login.conf
    

    Alternatively, you can use a backslash as a path separator but you must escape it with another backslash, such as

    
    C\:\\Program Files\\BMC Software\\BladeLogic
    \\NSH\\br\\blclient_login.conf
    

    Note that in either case you must use a backslash to escape the colon and backslash after the drive letter.

    java.security.krb5.conf=

    <path>/blclient_krb5.conf
    In this entry, <path> is the full path to the blclient_krb5.conf file. For Windows paths, use forward slashes as path delimiters, such as

    
    C\:\\Program Files/BMC Software/BladeLogic
    /NSH/br/blclient_krb5.conf
    

    Alternatively, you can use a backslash as a path separator but you must escape it with another backslash, such as

    
    C\:\\Program Files\\BMC Software\\BladeLogic
    \\NSH\\br\\blclient_krb5.conf
    

    Note that in either case you must use a backslash to escape the colon and backslash after the drive letter.

    javax.security.auth.useSubjectCredsOnly=

    false

If you are configuring a Windows server, set up authentication profiles using AD/Kerberos authentication on the BMC Server Automation client. See Authentication profiles and Managing authorizations.
