Reconfiguring the BMC Digital Workplace server
You can use the BMC Digital Workplace configuration utility to change settings that were initially set during installation. For example, you can use this utility if the name of your BMC Remedy AR System server changes. If you set up a load balancer for your AR System server, use this utility to point your BMC Digital Workplace server to the load balancer instead of the AR System server.
Before you begin
Locate the configuration utility ux-application-configuration-version.jar in the DigitalWorkplace_HOME\dwp\ux-application-configuration folder, where DigitalWorkplace_HOME is the directory where BMC Digital Workplace is installed. The default installation location is as follows:
- (Windows) C:\Program Files\BMC Software\dwp\
- (Linux) /opt/bmc/dwp/
The following video (4:55) demonstrates how you can use the configuration utility to change the AR System server that BMC Digital Workplace uses.
The following video shows an older version of BMC Helix Digital Workplace. The previous product name was MyIT. Although there might be minor changes in the UI, the overall functionality remains the same.
