Configuring the EMC Centera connection

You can configure the Alfresco EMC Centera Connector module to alter the behavior of the connection.
  1. Open the <classpathRoot>/alfresco-global.properties file.
  2. Add the centera.url property.

    For example:

    centera.url=168.159.214.24?c:/centera/c2armtesting.pea

    The centera.url property specifies the details of the EMC Centera server. For example, in this case, it specifies the IP address 168.159.214.24.

    The property also includes the location of the Centera c2armtesting.pea file. For example, C:/centera/c2armtesting.pea or /usr/local/Centera_SDK/c2armtesting.pea.

  3. Set any additional properties.

    There are various additional properties that can be set to control the Alfresco EMC Centera Connector module. For example, the retention period for storing content is controlled using the xam.archive.retentionPeriodDays=1 property.

    Note: The sample alfresco-global.properties file supplied in the Alfresco EMC Centera Connector AMP provides example settings and values.
  4. Save the alfresco-global.properties file.
  5. Ensure that Java can find the Centera libraries.

    On Windows, set the Path environment variable.

    1. Open the Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\System.
    2. Select Advanced System Settings > Advanced > Environment Variables.
    3. In the System Variables section, modify the existing Path environment variable by adding the path to the Centera libs.

    For example:

    Path=c:\centera\lib64

    On Linux, set the PATH and LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variables.

    For example:

    export PATH=$PATH:/usr/local/Centera_SDK/lib/64
    export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/Centera_SDK/lib/64
