Changing the Installation Folder

If you want to use the/myopt/myroot instead of the /opt/snaplogic as the installation folder and myuser instead of snapuser, do the following steps:

  1. Run the following commands after installing the RPM/DEB package:
    1. $ sudo mv /opt/snaplogic /myopt/myroot
    2. $ sudo chown -R myuser /myopt/myroot
  2. Add the following properties in the /etc/sysconfig/jcc file. If this file does not exist, create it.
    1. export SL_USER=myuser
    2. export SL_ROOT=/myopt/myroot
  3. Restart the service with the following command: 
    $ sudo /myopt/myroot/bin/ restart
  4. To make a service using init.d, make the /etc/init.d/snaplex file a symlink to the /myopt/myroot/bin/ file.

titleEnhanced Encryption Keys

When using Enhanced Account Encryption, the private key for the Org is stored in the /etc/snaplogic directory. We recommend that you also maintain a copy of the private key elsewhere. If the private keys are not available, then Accounts created in SnapLogic cannot be used.

System Limits

Some Linux installations have system ulimit settings that are set to lower values. This low setting can cause errors when running higher Pipeline loads on the Groundplex JCC node, such as, java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: unable to create new native thread.
