This property configures the location of the vRealize Hyperic server's SSL keystore.

Supply the full path to the keystore. The password for the keystore is defined by the `server.keystore.password` property.

The vRealize Hyperic installer (in `-full` mode), prompts for the values of `server.keystore.path` and `server.keystore.password` and stores the responses in hq-server.conf.

## Specifying the Keystore Path on Windows

On Windows platforms, specify the path to the keystore using Unix-style syntax. To use specify a full Windows path:

• Replace back slashes with forward slashes.

• Put a forward slash at the beginning of the path (before the drive letter.)

• If the path contains spaces, put a backslash before each space in the path For example, to specify this Windows path using Unix syntax ` C:\Documents and Settings\Desktop\keystore` and change it to ` /C:/Documents\ and\ Settings/Desktop/keystore`.

## Default

The initial value of `server.keystore.path` is set, based on the response to the installation dialog when you run the vRealize Hyperic installer in `-full` mode, depending on how you respond to the following prompt:

`Would you like us to use a user managed java keystore?`

• If the response is `yes`, the installer prompts for the path and password for your keystore, and saves the values supplied in `server.keystore.path` (this property) and `server.keystore.password`, respectively.

• If the response is `no`, the installer sets the value of `server.keystore.path` to `server.keystore.path=ServerHome/conf/hyperic.keystore`, which is the default location for the self-signed certificate that the vRealize Hyperic server generates at first startup, and sets `server.keystore.password` to the default password.
