Add directories to the LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable. UNIX® systems only.


[config]    LibPath=directory:directory2:directory3[...]

directory is the full path to a valid directory. The maximum length for LibPath is 1024 characters. By default, no directories are listed.


LibPath is used for UNIX® systems only. This parameter adds a list of directories to the LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable (DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH on macOS), which is used to search for third-party shared libraries. If you modify this setting, you must restart the instance for the change to take effect.

On macOS, if you have enabled System Integrity Protection (SIP), it may ignore the DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH variable executing programs in the system directories.

Changing This Parameter

On the Advanced Memory page of the Management Portal (System Administration > Configuration > Additional Settings > Advanced Memory), in the LibPath row, select Edit. Enter one or more directories, separated by colons.

Instead of using the Management Portal, you can change LibPath in the Config.configOpens in a new window class (as described in the class reference) or by editing the CPF in a text editor (as described in the Editing the Active CPF section of the “Introduction to the Configuration Parameter File” chapter in this book).
