Set an environment variable for the Java location Skip Navigation

Set an environment variable for the
Java
location

You must install a
JRE
17 implementation on the servers where you will install the
BlackBerry Connectivity Node
, and the environment variable must point to the
Java
home location.
When you begin the installation, the
BlackBerry Connectivity Node
verifies that it can find
Java
. If it can't find
Java
, the setup application will stop on the requirements panel and you must set an environment variable for the
Java
location and ensure that the
Java
bin folder is included in the Path system variable. Note that you must close down the installer at this time and restart it only after the environment variable has been created or updated.
Verify that you have installed
JRE
17 on the server where you will be installing the
BlackBerry Connectivity Node
.
