UCMDB Tip: Default location of the local scan file

By default, local scan file (local$.xsf) will be saved on Windows in




where  <AllUsersProfileDataDir> directory can be located in different places depending on the Operating System. Older versions of Windows used the LocalService profile (usually C:\Documents and Settings\LocalService\Application Data), while on newer versions it is usually saved in C:\ProgramData\Hewlett-Packard\Universal-Discovery.


The agent records the location of the data directory in the DATADIR agent option.


On UNIX or Mac OS X  local scan file will be saved in the $HOME/.discagnt directory.
