Catalog location

AIX® Runtime Expert catalog files are stored in the /etc/security/artex/catalogs directory.

The name of a catalog file must exactly match its id attribute, suffixed with .xml extension. For example, a catalog named commandParam.xml must have an id attribute value commandParam.

In order to be located by the profile that reference it, the catalog must have the same name in the catalog XML file and in the <Catalog> element of the profile XML file. By default, the AIX Runtime Expert core engine looks for catalogs in the default directory /etc/security/artex/catalogs. This behavior can be changed, for the root user only, by setting the ARTEX_CATALOG_PATH environment variable. Multiple directories can be specified in this environment variable using the : separator.
