Hi Folks, 

I installed ALM octane 12.60 in linux server. It is connected to Oracle DB. Octane is running without an issue for now. But, recently, I noticed that I installed/deployed Octane in /root/opt directory/ /root has very limitted space. Which would be full in a month from now. 

But, I have a same and huge space left with in the same server. That is I have another directory when I have about 1TB space. I know I should have installed or deployed Octane in this diectory. But did think of that time. 

Now, would I be able to move /octane folder which is in /root/opt directory to say "/alm_too/bucket"?  /alm_too/bucket has 1TB space unused.

What steps should I follow to move the /Octane directory?

What are the files that I should be editing with the new directory location of /Octane?

Note: This is a single node enviroment.

So basically you can do as following

1. stop the octane service
2. relocate repo from /opt/octane to any other FOLDER
3. change at setup.xml under /opt/octane/conf FOLDER PATH
4. start octane service

Hopefully it helps

Hello,

What is the exact concern about low space folder location?

Is it repository growth?

Thanks,

Shimon

@shimon_cherny ,

Yes, is a concern about repo growth.

Currently, repo in octane are directed or dumped in "repo" directory which is in /root/opt/octane directory. But this directory is only 30gb whih is almost full. So my another location  "/alm_too/bucket" still has bout 1TB free space left.

@shimon_cherny Thanks much!

Thats what I thought too. But, I was bit nervous to edit setup.xml file as I am under impression that I am break my octane instance. 

So, stop service, edit Repo location in setup.xml file, start service won't hurt Octane to start and up and running as like before, correct?

Are there any files or locations that new location of repo would need to be changed?

Thanks!

It should be enough to update it only at setup.xml

@shimon_cherny Sorry for delay. 

Just want to be sure and do not want to hit on my own foot. 

So, what I understood as to change Repo location to my desire folder is to do as below: 

1) stop service

2) Edit setup.xml file with the new location of Repo.

3) Start the service

All should be good?

But, what about the "runconfig.sh" and "updatesettings.sh" files that are in "/install" directory of Octane? Should not these both .sh files run before starting the Octane service?

These shell scripts are used for setup.
You can change setup xml and restart service.

Ok got it. 

But, what do I do with the existing sub-folders that are inside "repo" and "storage" folder?

Sub-Folders indise "repo" folders are: conf, and storage.

Sub-Folders indise "storage" folders are: schema, site, and sharedspaces.

Thanks @shimon_cherny !

I was able to change Octane REPO location to New Location by editing setup.xml file.
