System properties cannot be set via run.bat script in EAP 5.2

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • We have set service binding property via run.bat script for cluster environment like:
    run.bat -c all -Djboss.service.binding.set=ports-01

It worked fine in EAP 5.1.x. However, It does not work in EAP 5.2, got following exception in server.log:

XX:XX:XX,XXX ERROR [AbstractKernelController] Error installing to Instantiated: name=SystemPropertyBinder#8 state=Described No binding udp-bind_port found for service JGroups in set true
  • JBoss-EAP-5.2.0 run.bat is not taking parameters with an equal sign ("="), this used to work in our old version.
