LATEST VERSION: 9.2 - RELEASE NOTES
Pivotal GemFire® Client v9.2

Search Path for Multiple Properties Files

The client and cache server processes first look for their properties file in the product-dir/defaultSystem directory, then in the working directory.

Any properties set in the working directory override settings in the defaultSystem/geode.properties file.

If you are running multiple processes on one machine, you can configure the geode.properties file in the defaultSystem directory as a shared file that all processes can find. If a few processes need a slightly different configuration, you can put individual geode.properties files in their home directories to override specific properties.
