CLI embed-server feature ignores system properties and unable to configure server in custom jboss.server.base.dir location on EAP 7

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • How can I use a EAP 7 new feature embedded server to modify server configuration located in custom jboss.server.base.dir in EAP 7
  • When executing embed-server in JBoss-CLI, it ignores system properties such as jboss.server.base.dir. So, it's not possible to modify server configuration which is located in different directory other than default standalone or domain directory.
