Question:

On a machine (Unix / Windows) upon which a WAAE client resides, is there a way in which the client can be pointed or directed to use a different application server?

  

Environment:  

WAAE client running on the Unix or Windows platforms.

  

Answer:

The application server being used can be changed by modifying the configuration file on the client machine. The configuration file can be found in the following locations:

 

Unix -- $AUTOUSER/config.$AUTOUSER

Windows -- %AUTOUSER%\confiig.$AUTOUSER

 

Within the configuration file there is a parameter called AutoServer. The value associated with AutoServer is the hostname of the application server which will be used.

For example, if a value of AutoServer=war56bwa1 is specified in the configuration file, then the client will connect to the machine war56bwa1 and attempt to use its application server.

Multiple application servers can be specified. For example, if a value of AutoServer=war56bwa1, war56bwa2 is specified in the configuration file then the client will first attempt to connect to the machine war56bwa1 and then to the machine war56bwa2.
