are you in the correct working directory? also what file are you adding that data into? Keep in mind, depending on the file you are updating the oneagent will need to be recycled and possibly the service (Depending on that file).

hostcustomproperties: only requires a oneagent recycle - read more about it here:

DT_CUSTOM_PROP requires the service/process to be restarted

yes both Oneagent and the JVM process was restarted. We could be able to see the DT_CUSTOM_PROP entry in the JVM argument. It shows up like this;

Not sure why there's a "back slash". Can you please confirm the entry into the system properties is correct? thanks.

I was trying to look for docs on DT site for JBoss entry, i was able to find one for TomCat but not for JBoss. If you have any link that will be very helpful as well.

Interesting, im not 100% sure where the issue is then, Maybe someone else on the forums will sport the issue. You also might want to open a ticket or support chat with Dynatrace on this.
