The below steps can be used to change the location where CA looks for and stores newly created Indexes. It also will store the ND and Email Threading staging area data here as well.

 

1. Stop the CA site using the shutdown.cmd located in the BIN folder

2. Navigate to "C:\CAAT\etc\itemstore.properties"

3. Open the file in text editor, locate the following section and make the following changes:

 

Current:

device-caat=C\:/CAAT

default-device-name=caat

show-device-prefix-on-api=true

 

Changed to:

#device-caat=C\:/CAAT

#default-device-name=caat

#show-device-prefix-on-api=true

 

device-caat2=//servername/ecapture/Analytics/

default-device-name=caat2

show-device-prefix-on-api=true

 

4. Important to note that any backslashes in the file path need to be reversed for it to work

5. Start the site using the startup.cmd located in the BIN folder

6. Navigate to the new network path > validate it contains a .ufx folder and a @README.txt file

7. In the root of the new folder copy in all the indexes folders

8. Start the site using the startup.cmd located in the BIN folder

9. Connect to the CA site nexus portal to verify the indexes now show
