Parameter: groupbindaddress

Startup parameters change the behavior of the Service Manager server. You can always set a startup parameter from the server's operating system command prompt.




This parameter defines the TCP/IP address of the network adapter you want servlet container processes to use to communicate with other processes in a virtual group. You only need to define this parameter if the Service Manager host contains more than one network adapter.

It is best practice to place this parameter in the Service Manager initialization file so that all servlet container processes started on the same host share the TCP/IP address specified by this parameter.
