In some cases, it is necessary to run Enterprise Manager (EM) from a protected folder, such as "Program Files" on Windows or in read-only folders on Linux. In this case, the following rights have to be permitted:
1) The [AUTOPILOT_HOME]/logs folder must be writeable for creating log files. If logs cannot be created, EM will not start.
2) in the [AUTOPILOT_HOME]/mconsole folder, the file view.properties must be writeable. This is used to save settings and screen position. If not writeable, it will not prevent EM from running, but settings will not be saved.
3) In order to pre-populate future login information, multiple files may be created in the [AUTOPILOT_HOME]/mconsole folder using the following naming convention.
The use of these files can be disabled by setting console.autoload.profile to true in the ATPCONS.lax file as in the example below
lax.nl.java.option.additional=-Dconsole.autoload.profile=true -Dswing.aatext=true -Dserver.log4j.config=../log4j.util.properties
This file is written when logging off. If not permitted or disabled, an error will be generated when logging off EM, which can be closed by simply clicking OK.
