7.3.1 Updating the Learning settings in the dbbuild.properties file
If you did not set the optional Learning parameters in the dbbuild.properties file
during the HTTP server configuration, set them during the post-installation
configuration process. Some optional parameters will cause error conditions
unless they are modified. For example, if you do not populate the to and from
e-mail addresses, you will receive a configuration error, such as:
com.ibm.workplace.elearn.error: CLQAH0795E: Null or invalid email address:
{1}.
To update Learning settings in dbbuild.properties, perform the following steps:
1. Open \IBM\Workplace\WorkplaceServer\config\database\dbbuild.properties
in a text editor.
2. Change the properties required by your environment.
Table 7-1 shows the IBM Workplace Collaborative Learning properties in
dbbuild.properties that are set by the installation program. Changing these
properties is optional. Properties you should consider changing are
emphasized in bold italic.
