System configuration parameters

The topics in this section describe the parameters that control your Service Manager system, and how to set them. There are two basic types of parameters: system parameters and web tier parameters.

  • System parameters change the behavior of Service Manager. There are hundreds of system parameters, each of which is designed to assist system administrators and users.
  • Web tier parameters control the behavior and appearance of the Service Manager web tier, a web-based client interface.

Parameters that you set when you start the Service Manager server retain their values for as long as the server is running. To reset a startup parameter, restart the server. You can set startup parameters from either the server's operating system command prompt or from the Service Manager initialization file (sm.ini).
