thread825-1140606: Modifying Maximo.ini

Adding to an old thread in case there is anybody out there still using Maximo version 4.11 with Citrix. :)

There are three relevant parameters for the maximo.ini file relating to application logging.  The following are extracts from the appendix covering maximo.ini in the Maximo 4.11 System Administrators Guide.  Although using environment variables in the Logfile parameter isn't referred to specifically the mention of "any valid DOS file name" makes me think it may be possible to use something like "Logfile=%TEMP%\maximo.log" to force the file to the user's temp directory on Citrix.  Also worthwhile checking "DeleteLogFile=0" otherwise the file will be overwritten with each new Maximo session on the Citrix server:


Specifies the file to which MAXIMO error diagnostics are written. Any valid DOS file name may be used. If no folder is specified, the current working folder is used.


Indicates whether the previous log file should be deleted each time MAXIMO is started. If the log file is not deleted at start-up, diagnostics from the current MAXIMO session are appended to the log file. Valid values are 0 and 1.


Indicates whether MAXIMO should display complete SQL error messages whenever a SQL error is encountered. If full errors are not displayed, only the error number and a brief error description are given when an error occurs. If full errors are displayed, the offending piece of SQL code is displayed along with the error number and a brief description of the problem. Valid values are 0 and 1.
