    Wildfly 9 Startup with property file

    muthunagu100 Newbie

      I am trying to start "wildfly 9.0.1 Final" with a property file as an argument.

      This doesn't seem to work throwing back the "Usage" which actually supports argument "-P"


      Here is my command:

      standalone.sh –P=/home/props/fvmDocServer.properties

      Here is the Error Message. This shows Option "-P". I tried "--properties" as well, with no luck.

      Am I missing something? Could someone help me with this?


        JBoss Bootstrap Environment

        JBOSS_HOME: /local/app/jboss/wildfly-9.0.1.Final

      WFLYSRV0073: Invalid option '–P=/home/FVM/fvmDocServer.properties'


      Usage: standalone.sh [args...]

      where args include:

          --admin-only                        Set the server's running type to

                                              ADMIN_ONLY causing it to open

                                              administrative interfaces and accept

                                              management requests but not start other

                                              runtime services or accept end user



          -b <value>, -b=<value>              Set system property jboss.bind.address

                                              to the given value


          -b<interface>=<value>               Set system property

                                              jboss.bind.address.<interface> to the

                                              given value


          -c <config>, -c=<config>            Name of the server configuration file

                                              to use (default is "standalone.xml")

                                              (Same as --server-config)


          --debug [<port>]                    Activate debug mode with an optional

                                              argument to specify the port. Only

                                              works if the launch script supports it.


          -D<name>[=<value>]                  Set a system property


          -h, --help                          Display this message and exit


          --read-only-server-config=<config>  Name of the server configuration file

                                              to use. This differs from

                                              '--server-config' and '-c' in that the

                                              original file is never overwritten.


          -P <url>, -P=<url>,                 Load system properties from the given

               --properties=<url>             url

          -S<name>[=<value>]                  Set a security property


          --server-config=<config>            Name of the server configuration file

                                              to use (default is "standalone.xml")

                                              (Same as -c)


          -u <value>, -u=<value>              Set system property

                                              jboss.default.multicast.address to the

                                              given value


          -v, -V, --version                   Print version and exit


          -secmgr                             Runs the server with a security manager
