There are two methods for modifying user configuration parameters:
Use the Global console to edit the user configuration files and modify configuration parameters.
Use the command line to issue the dmctl command to temporarily modify configuration parameters when the Adapter is running.
Some configuration changes can only be made by modifying the parameter settings in the configuration files and then restarting the Adapter. Every time the Adapter starts, it sets its configurations in accordance to the settings in the user (and other) configuration files.
