Error description

  • In order to enable logging of the connection between ACE and
    Kafka, users should be able to create a log4j.properties file in
    either: the work directory of the integration server or the work
    directory of the integration node for node managed servers, or
    for independent integration servers in it's work directory.
    These files are not being located correctly, and instead only
    the log4j.properties file from the installation directory is
    being used currently.
