Can a StarTeam hive reside on a different machine than the Server Configuration?


Answer:

It is possible to have a hive residing on a different machine. To do this you need to perform the following actions although it is strongly recommended that you read the StarTeam Administrators Guide which has a section called ?Viewing Hive Properties? beforehand. It is also recommended that you backup all data and hives before attempting to perform these steps and that you try it on a test server first.

1. Shut the StarTeam Server down.
2. Copy/Move the default hive folder to the new location.
3. Map the drive of the remote machine storing the hive from the StarTeam machine
4. Open the Hive Manager on the Server Admin Console
5. Select the Hive.
6. Select Properties.
7. Browse to the new mapped locations for the Archive and Cache.
8. Select OK.
9. Start the StarTeam Server.
