Hi,

 

it is not supported or advised to install the Agent in a different directory on the Linux/Unix flavors. (On Windows this is configurable, but recommended to stick with the standard default).

If you run into space problems the Installation Guide offers a possible solution using symbolic links:

 

Note:

If you do not have sufficient space in the installation or data directory, you can

symbolically link the install or data directory to another location on the same system by using

the ln -s command.

For example, to symbolically link the

/opt/OV directory to the /new directory, run the following

command:

ln -s /new /opt/OV

 

 

I hope this helps you.

Best regards

Marc

Hello Sridhara,

 

OA installs in /opt/OV. This is not configurable, but you can create a symbolic link to another location, e.g.:

 

# mkdir /other/location

# ln -s /other/location /opt/OV

 

This is also described in the OA Installation Guide.

 

Br,

TT.
