Setting Environment Variables for Micro Focus Directory Server

When you set environment variables for a Micro Focus Directory Server (MFDS), the environment variables apply to all server instances that the MFDS controls.

Note: Environment variables set at the enterprise server instance level override any corresponding environment variables set at the MFDS level.

Under UNIX, you configure the environment variables in the command shell from which you start MFDS. For example:

  1. Start a command shell.
  2. Set the environment variables that you want. For example, to set that the Enterprise Server instance uses the EBCDIC character set, use the following command:
  3. From the command shell, use the mfds command to start MFDS.
