Apache Ignite script not reading external configuration files



Users followed the installation document to run Apache Ignite clustering JVM in client-server mode.

The engine comes up, but users do not know how to externalize configuration files such as prconfig.xml, prlogj2.xml, and the PegaTemp directory.

Error Messages

WARNING:- prlogging.xml is no longer supported in this version of prpc
INFO: Could not find java:comp/env/prconfig/ in the local JNDI context, skipping prconfig setting lookup
INFO: Could not find prconfig in the local JNDI context, skipping prconfig setting lookup

Steps to Reproduce

Run script from the media.

Root Cause

The installation/upgrade/migration fails with error messages about reading configuration files from the wrong folder.


Perform the following local-change:
  1. Change the script manually to add the “-D”, for example:
    “$JAVA_BIN $JVM_OPTS -cp "$classpath" "$PROP_FLAG" -Dpegarules.config=/your_path/prconfig.xml com.pega.platform.module $ARGS”
    With this change, the script output console shows the following information:
    Found spec for PegaRULES configuration using System property: /your_path/prconfig.xml
    Located PegaRULES configuration: file:/your_path/prconfig.xml

  2. Repeat Step 1 for pegarules.logging.configuration env variable.
The database user password in can be encrypted using runPega.bat PassGen.
With Pega 7.3.1, the Apache Ignite engine can be run inside a webcontainer, and -D JVM arguments can be added to the JVM instead of modifying the script.

The Apache Ignite engine uses the JVM temp directory where it creates the extractedFiles folder, which is different from the Pega engine PegaTemp folder.
