Kofax Document Exchange Server Installation Guide for WebLogic
Sharing the Configuration Files
There are many configuration files that are installed to the \conf folder in the root of the
WebLogic domain. The Kofax Document Exchange Server Administrator’s Guide has instructions on
how to use these files to customize your implementation. In a clustered environment, all managed
servers in the cluster should use the same configuration settings. The recommended way to
accomplish this is to maintain each managed server’s local \conf folder and manage the files
either manually or by using a centralized management tool.
Another alternative is to create a network share, place the configuration files in that share, and
specify the share location in a property in the install.properties file. When you create the share, the
final location in the path must be a folder named \conf. Then, modify the avalin.domain.conf.path
property in the install.properties file with a value of the full UNC path to the share, or UNC path
to clustered shared storage location.
If you use this method to share the configuration files and the network share fails, all
of the servers in the cluster will be affected.
