Configure and change shipped defaults

Set the library list:

This is the name of the language library used in the LANGLIBE parameter when installing. If *SAME was used the name will be AXESxxxx where xxxx is the language code.

Change the aXes Job description library list to include this library.

Then, for all languages, do this:

ADDLIBLE AXES (or the equivalent aXes product library)

Set aXes to start with the subsystem

Type GO CMDAXES

Select option 10. Change aXes application server:
  • Change parameter instance to AXES
  • Change the last parameter AUTOSTART SERVER to *YES
  • Press Enter.

Change the default port number

If you are not already in the aXes menu use GO CMDAXES:

Ensure aXes default port 80 is not in use. To check try this in a web browser:

http://<yourhostname>:80

If the port number is in use, you need to use another port:

Select option 39. Work with aXes Servers:
  • Press Enter
  • Use option 22 (Edit configuration) against the aXes server *AXESW3
  • Locate the line containing # Port=80, remove the # character and update to the required port number
  • F3 Save/Exit

Make sure the port number is not blocked by web browser default configurations. At http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_TCP_and_UDP_port_numbers is a list of registered TCP/IP ports. We recommend any port number greater than 1023 and not listed in the Wikipedia list (e.g.: 8085) or listed with Status = Unofficial (e.g.: 8081).

Also check http://www.iana.org/assignments/port-numbers to ensure the port number is not well known or registered.

Changing the default CCSIDs:

Usually changing the default CCSIDs is not necessary.

If required, please refer to the aXes configuration change examples in: How to change aXes configurations

Updating the library for aXes Spool File and Data Explorer Server:

If you have upgraded your aXes installation, you get the following message:

Image

Open the https.xml configuration file at the following location:

<your JSM directory>/jsm/instance/system/httpd.xml

 

Typically, this would be located at:

AXESJSM/jsm/instance/system/httpd.xml

 

And change the following lines to use the JSM library for your install. Typically this would be the name of your aXes installed library followed by JSM. So if you have installed axes in the AXES library, you would use AXESJSM

 

Around Line 206 for DE:

<parameter name="database.library" value="AXESJSM"/>

 

Around line 229 for WS

<parameter name="database.library" value="AXESJSM"/>

 

Updating the library for aXes Spool File and Data Explorer Server:

If you have upgraded your aXes installation you might want to change your default jQuery Theme.

 

Open the aXesTS.conf file at <axes_fdirectory>/config/axests.conf

 

Find the following line. Please note it might hold some different values:

TS2defaulttheme=theme_default

 

And add the following line below.

TS2defaultjqtheme=smoothness

 

The first line defines the default basic theme for aXes-TS2 sessions.

The second line defines the jQuery default theme for aXes-TS2 default configuration.
