Enabling Dynamic Media AEM 6.5



I am working with cq-quickstart-6.5.0.jar in local, and the VM is updated with last version (
Following the indication of the link:

I’m starting the VM with the commands:
java -Xms4096m -Xmx4096m -Doak.queryLimitInMemory=500000 -Doak.queryLimitReads=500000 -jar cq-quickstart-6.5.0.jar -gui -r author,dynamicmedia_scene7 -p 4502

The AEM is starting OK, but I can’t see the Dynamic Media active. After initiate the VM (with the dynamicmedia_scene7 commands), I have to do something more?

Hello @jlfera,


In your command add the debug flag to verify the runmode in CMD:
java -Xdebug -Xms4096m -Xmx4096m -Doak.queryLimitInMemory=500000 -Doak.queryLimitReads=500000 -jar cq-quickstart-6.5.0.jar -gui -r author,dynamicmedia_scene7 -p 4502

After AEM instance is up double check the runmode from AEM: http://localhost:4502/system/console/status-slingsettings

Also check the configuration of Dynamic Media Configuration in the Cloud Services section: http://localhost:4502/libs/dam/content/configurations/dmscene7.html/conf. If you have the configuration already in-place you will see the /content/dam/_CSS and /content/dam/_DMSAMPLE folders sync'd to your localhost.  

If above everything is in place then upload a sample asset and check whether the Scene7 metadata is updated for that node:
<Asset_Path>/jcr:content/metadata and you will find below properties:
