Added new pconfig parameter and variables

  • A new pconfig parameter, disableRemoteServers is added to monitor the local Oracle WebLogic Servers, which are running on the same host as theWebLogic admin. You can enable PATROL for Oracle WebLogic to monitor the local Oracle WebLogic Servers, which are running on the same host as the WebLogic admin by setting the value of disableRemoteServers to true: disableRemoteServers=true

  • The following pconfig variables have been added to configure Oracle WebLogic Servers using wpconfig.

    • JAVA_HOME
    • WL_HOME

    Note

    On Windows computers, ensure that the directory is only one level into the directory structure. The EPD package creates a directory in the temporary directory when you extract the files, and the directory that contains the installation image should not be in a directory deeper than two levels into the directory structure.

  2. Go to http://www.bmc.com/available/epd.html.
  3. At the logon prompt, enter your user ID and password, and click Submit.
  4. On the Export Compliance and Access Terms page, provide the required information, agree to the terms of the agreements, and click Continue.
  5. If you are accessing this site for the first time, create an EPD profile to specify the languages and platforms that you want to see, per the EPD site help; otherwise, skip to step 6.
  6. Verify that the correct profile is displayed for your download purpose.
