Configuring the address server

To change the configuration of the AAS server, select Server -> Edit Server Parameters. Enter the following information for the server:

Database directory
The directory where the address server stores the transaction log.

Database compression size (bytes)

Checkpoint interval (seconds)
The time interval in seconds between checkpoints at which the address server creates a new checkpoint file from the transaction log.

Number of checkpoints
The maximum number of recent checkpoint files retained by the address server.

Passwords are used for authentication of network services running on other hosts requesting address allocation service. There can be any number of passwords.

To add a password, enter it in the field, and click on Add.

To delete a password, enter it in the field, and click on Delete.

To verify the existence of a password in the database, enter it in the field, and click on Verify.

Click on OK to store the changed configuration.

To restart the address server and implement any changes you made to its configuration parameters, select Server -> Reconfigure.

If you want to stop or start the address server at any time, select Server -> Stop Server or Server -> Start Server.
