Environment

Release : 11.4

Component : CA WORKLOAD AUTOMATION AE IXP

Resolution

We recommend using a startup script to start IXP to ensure the environment gets set properly each time.

Example:

export JRE_HOME=/zz/ixp/JRE64_WA
export IXP_HOME=/zz/ixp/ixphome
export JAVA_OPTS="-Dixp.home=$IXP_HOME -Xms1500m -Xmx1500m"
export JAVA_HOME=/zz/ixp/JRE64_WA
export PATH=/zz/ixp/JRE64_WA/bin:$PATH
/zz/ixp/apache-tomcat-8.5.63/bin/startup.sh

Adjust the paths for your environment.
