Creating a Configuration File

Use

With this procedure you create a file containing all the required configurations for the client.

This procedure is to be used in exceptional cases only. In standard case scenarios, we recommend using device configurations (see Configuration of Mobile Devices Using Device Configurations).

Procedure

...

       1.      Create a text file named manifest.mf and store it in a folder named META-INF.

The text file must have the following contents: CONFIGUPDATE:X

       2.      Create a further text file with a name of your choice and with the file extension .config.

This file contains all the configuration settings that you want to transfer to the mobile devices with the deployment mechanism.

       3.      Build the contents of the configuration file as follows:

<Parameter>=<Value>

MobileEngine.Sync.ConnectionTimeout=60000

MobileEngine.Sync.Language=EN

For more information on the possible parameters, see Parameters in MobileEngine.config.

       4.      Pack the two files in a ZIP archive file.
