Setting up Java

System Administrator Guide for VSP E990 and VSP G130, G/F350, G/F370, G/F700, G/F900

Part Number

Set up Java to perform the following activities:

  • Enable tracing and logging so that you can collect log files when an application error occurs on a management client
  • Change the cache settings so that to prevent the old software from remaining in cache when a software is updated, the old software will not remain in the cache
  • Configure a proxy server

Proxy server settings

You can set Device Manager - Storage Navigator to either use or not use a proxy server to access the SVP. To do this, change the HTTP setting on the web browser on the management client to either use a proxy server, or set the SVP as an exception so that it does not use a proxy server. Whichever setting you use, make the same setting for Java.
