Changing the JVM
PKI Services Manager uses Java technology to support running on multiple platforms. PKI Services Manager installs its own Java Virtual Machine (JVM) and uses this installed JVM by default. It is also possible to configure PKI Services Manager to use a different JVM.
To change the JVM on Windows
Note: The path to the JVM can also be set using the environment variable PKID_JVM_PATH on Windows systems. If the path is specified in both the registry and using the environment variable, the environment variable takes precedence.
To change the JVM on UNIX
To configure a JVM on UNIX you need to define an environment variable called PKID_JVM_PATH configured to point to the JVM shared library (either libjvm.so or libjvm.sl depending on your UNIX operating system). For example, on Linux:
export PKID_JVM_PATH = /usr/java/default/jre/lib/amd64/server/libjvm.so
To create a persistent variable, you can use the following procedure.
Note: You can also configure an environment variable called PKID_JVM_PARAMS for supplying any additional parameters or arguments. Use this feature if you are also configuring connections via a SOCKS proxy.
