Move Configuration Repository

Post by proulier » Thu Jun 12, 2014 3:30 pm

I installed ME8.5 Premium and accidentally accepted the default file locations during setup. I need the data to be stored on a different drive. When I try to reinstall, I do not get any prompts that would allow me to change the Repository folder location? When I try to re-install, there is no option to change folders.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

You'll have to actually move the configuration from where you put it to where you want it, then reset the permissions as per the below link. ... D=ME020073

I had to set permissions manually through windows explorer, rather than command line as apparently in server 2012 the CACLS command is deprecated or changed. The :F part of the command I believe sets "full control" with the permission.

Also, if you look at the permissions on the config repository where it is now, they are different (meaning there are extra IME_ accounts) with permissions to the folder over and above what is specified in that link, however when I added only the ones they specify, it seemed to work fine.

Just be very careful, sometimes it doesn't work the way you would like - personally, having gone through it all before, I would just wipe the computer and start over doing it the way you want and setting the correct storage locations. You can try an uninstall/reinstall, but it never seems to take it back to a from-scratch point like wiping the computer does.
