Property lists

You specify property lists on the Cluster.exe command line in the following ways:

  • Name = Value[,Value ...][:Format][Name=Value[,Value ...][:Format] ...]

    For example:

    cluster opsclust node mynode /priv prop1=string1,string2:multistring prop2=0xa,0xb:binary

  • : PropertyName1[,PropertyName2, ...]/usedefault

    For example:

    cluster opsclust node mynode /priv:prop1,prop2 /usedefault

To revert to the default value of a common property or to delete a private property, use the /usedefault command-line option.

The following table describes the available format options.


Format Description Example


Separated list of values from 0 to 255

myBinary = 12,0xab,255:binary


Double word



Double quotation marks are required around strings with spaces

myString="string value":string
