I have installations where I run more than one IdP on the server, and thus I also had a need to use an alternate folder.

Running ubuntu and tomcat and the folder shibboleth321-idp, this is how I got it to work:

In web.xml I added:

In my tomcat bin folder I added/edited the file setenv.sh to include the following line:
export JAVA_OPTS="-Didp.home=/opt/shibboleth321-idp"

I’m still not sure the web.xml edit is needed. I tried that first but it was not sufficient. I then added the setenv.sh line and it worked.

For other containers, I don’t know the answer.

>You should use the default install location and not set it. If you have to set it, that depends on the container and OS. It'a a Java system property. Jetty can get them set in start.ini for example.
