You can edit the $INSTALL_DIR\etc... file to modify any configuration option that is used by the 7-Mode Transition Tool. This file contains information about all of the configurable options that are necessary for the tool to operate.

The file contains various options; for example, you can specify the port on which the tool service starts, and the port that the tool uses to communicate with the 7-Mode system or cluster.

Steps
