Is it possible to change the Java JRE version used by Control-M for Advanced File Transfer or Managed File Transfer?
Control-M/Advanced File Transfer and Managed File Transfer doesn't use the BMC_JAVA_HOME environment variable described in KA 000132728 (as opposed to Control-M Application Pack, it doesn't use the same Java JRE version that the agent is using).
To direct the AFT/MFT to use a different JRE (as long as it is with the same major version 1.8.xxx) please change the following:
1. link the /cm/AFT/JRE_LINK to the new location.
2. Backup and modify the new JRE lib/security/java.security file with our security providers (that can be taken from our JRE_LINK/lib/security/java.security file).
The section that should be modified looks like this:
