Repository utility parameters

By default, the Repository utility uses the parameter values in the InstallUtility.properties file. You can override the default parameter values by either of the following actions:
  • As a best practice, make a backup of the InstallUtility.properties file and then change the parameter values in InstallUtility.properties.
  • Enter the parameters with their new values in the command line when you run this utility.
