Editing the inspector.properties file

Use this procedure to manually change settings in the inspector.properties file after installation.

About this task

IBM® Installation Manager updates the inspector.properties file with the host name, port, and valid user name and password that you provided on the configuration panel and deploys the Inspector EAR to the target application server. During deployment, the application server unpacks the EAR content into an installed apps directory. For example, WAS_PROFILE_HOME/installedApps/$cell_name/inspector.ear. The inspector.properties file is under inspector.war/WEB-INF/classes.


  1. Go to the inspector.war/WEB-INF/classes directory and open the inspector.properties file in a text editor.
  2. Change the necessary parameters and make sure that required parameters are not commented out.
  3. Save the inspector.properties file to the inspector.war/WEB-INF/classes directory.
