The value %i should expand to the local ip address of the server.

This expansion should be supported in the server element attributes.

Having this feature will enable the config file to be “location independent” - allowing it to be moved around without having to change the config file.

From what I see in com.tc.config.schema.dynamic.ParameterSubstituter.substitute(String source) the following macros are supported (including requested %i):

%d - getUniqueTempDirectory() %h - getHostname(); %i - getIpAddress();
%H - System.getProperty(“user.home”); %n - System.getProperty(“user.name”); %o - System.getProperty(“os.name”); %a - System.getProperty(“os.arch”); %v - System.getProperty(“os.version”); %t - System.getProperty(“java.io.tmpdir”);

As far as I can tell this should work for logs and data elments.

Taylor, I just tested 2.2 release and it is working there.

After discussing this with Steve, he suggested that these macros should be documented somewhere.

Sounds good.

Any of you think we may be overdoing it a little with the wildcards? Maybe two or three would be enough.

Updating Due date to last day of Moraga dev iteration

Let’s apply this fix to demos. Then we need to test that they can be run from localhost and a different host without changing the config. Which is better - %i or %h?

Steve Harris 2007-02-28

With the current demos, is this problem already gone?

Fiona OShea 2007-03-05

QA, this should work according to Gary can you verify?

Fiona OShea 2007-03-05

Marking fixed as Gary says this should work.

This is not quite fixed, but is a quick one-liner.

Fiona OShea 2007-03-08

Can we have this fixed be EOD Friday 3/9?

Nathaniel Harward 2007-03-09

The samples tc-config.xml files have also been updated to use a host of “%i” and a symbolic name of “sample”
