This technical note describes how to specify a non-default data folder for Reflection X Advantage. Instructions provided here are for standalone (default) Reflection X Advantage installations running on Windows platforms.
This note includes the following information:
By default, Reflection X stores configuration data and log files in a data folder located in the Windows user profile folder. Depending on your Windows operating system, the default location is one of the following:
Subfolders within this folder include the “db” folder (which contains the Reflection X Advantage database) and the “logs” folder. Depending on your configuration, additional subfolders may also be present.
Use this procedure to configure a non-default data folder location. For this customization you will modify a file called rxmgr.alp.
alp.java.command.options=-server -XX:+UseConcMarkSweepGC -XX:+CMSIncrementalMode -XX:NewSize=64m -Xms256m -Xmx1024m -Dsun.java2d.d3d=false -Drx.rxmgr.db.home="C:\rxadatabase"
To use default settings:
Start X Manager. Reflection X Advantage will create the new directory if it doesn’t already exist and create all required files.
To use your existing settings:
Locate the default data folder. Copy the subfolders and all of their contents to the new data folder. Then start X Manager.
If you install a newer version of Reflection X over a modified rxmgr.alp file, the Windows installer will not replace your modified file with a newer file. Each new version of Reflection X Advantage requires an updated rxmgr.alp file. If an older version is present, you will receive an “Unexpected error” message when you launch Reflection X Manager. To avoid this error, you must remove the modified file before you install any newer version. For details, see Technical Note 2530.
