Question & Answer
IBM Java for AIX HowTo: Exempting Java Applications from SED
sedmgr -d ExecutableName
sedmgr -d /usr/java7_64/bin/java
/usr/java7_64/bin/java : exempt
Applications that use their own Java launchers and create JVM instances using JNI may not be exempt.
sedmgr -d ./SampleProgram
These applications must be explicitly patched to exempt them from SED.
To turn off the SED request bit:
sedmgr -c exempt ExecutableName
Use the command: sedmgr -m value to change the system wide settings where value is:
off - The SED mechanism is turned off and no process is marked for SED protection.
select - Only a select set of files are enabled and monitored for SED protection.
all - All executable programs loaded on the system are SED protected except for the files requesting an exemption from SED mode.
To turn off SED use:
sedmgr -m off
and reboot the system
