Customizing properties in the Java Master Security file

The java master security file is located in <install>/jre/lib/security/ You can update this file and customize security properties as you like to take effect when the product runs. However, with each successive IBM® Sterling Control Center Monitor upgrade, this file is overwritten by the installer with the default file, causing your prior updates to be lost.

In order to preserve your changes across IBM Sterling Control Center Monitor upgrades, use the override file located in <install>/conf/ This file is initially shipped with comments only and provides an example of how to make updates. Any java security property specified in will take precedence over that same property specified in the master file. This file is preserved across each upgrade.
