JBoss EAP is referencing individual server configuration directory instead of the domain configuration

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • server is looking for a "configuration" dir under the server, not in the domain base dir
  • server.log contains error similar to:
[org.jboss.as.controller.management-operation] (Controller Boot Thread) WFLYCTL0013: Operation ("add") failed - address: ([
    ("subsystem" => "elytron"),
    ("properties-realm" => "ManagementRealm")
]) - failure description: {"WFLYCTL0080: Failed services" => {"org.wildfly.security.security-realm.ManagementRealm" => "WFLYELY00017: Property file referenced in properties-realm does not exist: /opt/jboss-eap-7.2/domain/servers/server-one/configuration/mgmt-users.properties (No such file or directory)"}}
