Flag indicating whether users must log in to client tools. This option enables users to save a previous login of their choice. Values are
This option does not apply to the mid tier.
Flag indicating whether a source code control integration requires you to enter a comment at checkin. Values are
Flag indicating whether a source code control integration requires you to enter a comment at checkout. Values are
Flag indicating whether a source code control system is being used with BMC Remedy AR System. Values are
Flag indicating the level of source code control integration. Values are
|SCC-Provider-Name||Name of the source code control provider. For example: Visual Source Safe.|
|SCC-Target-Dir||Character string for the source code control system target directory. If none is present, this value is NULL. This string is limited to 255 characters.|
|Select-Query-Hint 2||Text to use in a query hint in the WITH clause of a SELECT statement when queries are supplied to Microsoft SQL Server databases. This option works only for queries triggered by GLE,GLEWF, and GME API calls. If this option is an empty string or is not present, no WITH clause is generated. To determine the appropriateness of using this feature in your environment, consult your SQL Server documentation. This option is commonly used with a NOLOCK setting for allowing queries to execute without being blocked by simultaneous updates, thereby improving performance. For example, to allow SQL Server to read data being updated and avoid blocking, use this syntax:Select-Query-Hint: NOLOCK|
Name of the computer where the AR System server is installed. By default, a server in a server group uses a fully qualified server name with domain to identify itself. Others servers in the group use this name to communicate. To change the server name, add this option to the configuration file:
If a common server alias is specified, this option is required.
|Server-directory1||Full path name of the AR System data directory. This directory contains support and log files for the AR System server.|
Port number (RMIPort ) for email administration in Email Engine. If RMIPort is different from the default (1100 ), set this option to the new, port number to enable the server to communicate email administration information to Email Engine during server group processing. For example, in a single Email Engine configuration, use this syntax:
If multiple Email Engines are configured for the server, each engine must have a unique RMIPort. For a multiple Email Engine configuration, use semicolons to separate the RMIPort numbers. For example:
Port number (RMIRegistryPort ) for Flashboards administration in the Flashboards server. If the default Flashboards port number is changed, set this option to the new port number to enable the server to communicate Flashboards administration information to the Flashboards server during server group processing. For example:
|Server-Group-Log-File||Name and location of the server group trace log file. The default name is arsrvgrp.log. For example: Server-Group-Log-File: c:\temp\servgroup.log|
|Server-Group-Member||Flag indicating whether the server is a member of a server group. Values are T and F (default).|
Method that a server in a server group uses to notify other members of the group about object definition cache changes. Values are
The combined signaling and database posting method reduces server activity but does not notify other servers as quickly as the all-arsignald method. (See Configuring the server group signaling option.)
An alias that is always interpreted as the current server. This option is used in multiple server installations to differentiate servers. In a server group, Server-Name refers to the load balancer name.
If you specify a value for this option, enter the value after the -h option when you use thearreload command-line utility. Otherwise, arreload uses the default server name rather than the name specified by this option. Do not specify a fully qualified name for this option. For example, use alpha instead of alpha.remedy.com.
Note: If this server belongs to a server group and you use a common server alias, you must also specify the Server-Connect-Name option. (See Server-Connect-Name.)
Alias of a plug-in server. When the BMC Remedy AR System server calls a plug-in server, it must determine whether the plug-in server name is an alias. Aliases can direct the BMC Remedy AR System server to access a plug-in server running on a different host or listening at a specified port number. The syntax is
Workflow (that is, references to AR Filter API and ARDBC plug-ins) references a plug-in name. This name can be an alias. This enables you to run a plug-in on a remote host or to run more than one instance of a plug-in on a host. For example, to run the RMDY.ARDBC.XML plug-in on the remote host foo at port number 12345, add the following entry to the AR System server configuration file: Server-Plugin-Alias: RMDY.ARDBC.XML RMDY.ARDBC.XML foo:12345. The alias and real plug-in names can be identical if you run the plug-in on a remote host. To run more than one instance of the plug-in on the same or different hosts, create different aliases that reference the same plug-in on its respective hosts.
|Server-Plugin-Default-Timeout||Number of seconds in which the plug-in server must respond to a call before an error is returned. The minimum value is 0. The maximum is 600. The default is 60.|
Encrypted password used to call a plug-in server. The BMC Remedy AR System server uses this password whenever it communicates with a plug-in server running on the specified host and port. The syntax is:
|Server-Side-Table-Chunk-Size||For server-side table fields, the number of requests (or size of the chunk) that the server retrieves at one time from the database and stores in memory to process during filter or filter guide actions. The server then retrieves, stores, and processes the next chunk until all requests are processed. The value 0 causes the server to retrieve an unlimited number of requests. The default is 1000 requests. Specifying a lower value causes the server to process smaller chunks, which reduces server memory use but results in slower processing because the server must access the database many times, especially for large tables. Specifying a higher value causes the server to retrieve and process large chunks of data and access the database fewer times. This results in improved performance at the cost of increased memory use.|
|Server-Stats-Rec-Interval||Interval (in seconds) at which the server records server statistics. The default is 60 seconds.|
Server statistics recording mode. This option determines what information is recorded in the server statistics form. Values are
To see the statistics, open the Server Statistics form. (See Server statistics for baseline data.)
|Set-Process-Timeout||Number of seconds the BMC Remedy AR System server waits before ending a Set Fields process that did not finish. Values are 1 through 60. The default value is 5.|
|SQL-Log-File||Full path name of the file to use if SQL logging is on (See Debug-mode).|
(Microsoft SQL Server only) Flag indicating the type of authentication to use to connect BMC Remedy AR System to a Microsoft SQL Server database. Values are
|SQL-Server-Set-ANSI-Defaults 2||Option that causes the server to issue a SET ANSI_NULLS ON command.|
Flag indicating whether the Submitter field can be changed and whether the submitter of a request must have a write license to modify it. Values are
|Suppress-warnings 2||A series of zero or more message numbers (separated by spaces) that identify informational or warning messages that the system should suppress. Only server warnings and notes can be suppressed.|
|Sybase-Character-Set 1||(Sybase databases only) Alternative character set to use for communications between BMC Remedy AR System and the underlying database.|
|Sybase-Server-Name 1||(Sybase and Microsoft SQL Server only) Logical server name of the underlying database. The default value is SYBASE.|
Bitmask that sets logging options for the operating system. Values are
Flag to specify whether system messages appear in the prompt bar or a pop-up box. Values are
Alternatively, you can specify how system messages appear by changing the value in the Use Prompt Bar For field on the Configuration tab of the Server Information form.
|TCD-Specific-Port||TCP port for the arserver process. If this option is not set, the dispatcher is randomly assigned to an available port. (TCD stands for transaction control daemon.)|
|Thread-Log-File||Full path name of the file to use if thread logging is on (See Debug-mode).|
Flag indicating whether the BMC Remedy AR System server populates progress information (if any) during long-running administrative operations, such as definition imports.
To retrieve the progress information, clients can use the GetServerInfo function with the AR_SERVER_INFO_ADMIN_OP_PROGRESS request tag.
Integer that specifies the cutoff year for interpreting a two-digit year as a four-digit year. For example, if the two-digit cutoff year is 2040:
If a two-digit year cutoff is not specified, a rolling two-digit year is used: Two-digit years are the years between the current year plus 29 years and the current year minus 70 years. For example, if the current year is 2002, two-digit years are the years between 1922 and 2031.
|Use-FTS-In-Workflow||Controls whether the server will use full text searches when executing queries during workflow that have full text indexed fields in the qualification. If this option is not used, the server will use the search capability of the database. The options are T (use FTS in workflow) and F (do not use FTS in workflow).|
Validation mechanism for unregistered AR System users. To set this value, use the Authenticate Unregistered Users check box in the EA tab of the AR System Administration: Server Information form. Windows Indicates whether the Windows domain service is used to validate users not registered with BMC Remedy AR System. Values are
UNIX and Linux Indicates whether the /etc/passwd file is used to validate users not registered with BMC Remedy AR System. Values are
Flag indicating whether the server name specified by the Server-Connect-Name option is used as the value for the Server Name field when Server Statistics form entries are created. Values are
If the Server-Connect-Name is not configured, the default behavior occurs.
When a common server alias is specified for all servers in a server group, the same server name is used for the servers, effectively combining the statistics for all servers in the group.
|User-Log-File||Full path name of the file to use if user logging is on (See Debug-mode).|
Option indicating whether the object modification log is enabled or disabled. When the log is enabled, it records every change to AR System objects in your system (See Version control in BMC Remedy AR System). Values are:
|The Object Modification Log field on the Version Control tab in the AR System Administration: Server Information form. |
(See Setting version control options.)
Option indicating whether the AR System server writes a definition file each time an object is created or changed (See Version control in BMC Remedy AR System). This option is effective only when the object modification log is enabled. Values are
|The Save Definition Files field on the Version Control tab in the AR System Administration: Server Information form. (See Setting version control options.)|
Option indicating whether object reservation is enforced or disabled. When object reservation is enforced, users can reserve server objects, and BMC Remedy AR System prevents other users from modifying the reserved objects (See Version control in BMC Remedy AR System). Values are
|The Object Reservation field on the Version Control tab in the AR System Administration: Server Information form. (See Setting version control options.)|
