satellite server, how to not use C drive

I have ZCM installed on a single server currently. I would like to add satellite servers for replicate content and imaging. I do not want to have this information go to the C drive due to space, but go to the E drive with is very large. Is there a way I can specify which drive the info will go to, of is THe C dirve the only place.

thanx

Re: satellite server, how to not use C drive

I had this same issue. My solution was sort of what they recommended
for the Linux servers if you wanted the data on another partition or
drive space. I had a second drive installed and then instead of giving
it a drive letter I created a folder called 'novell' under 'program
files' and mapped the new hard drive to the 'novell' folder. Then, I
installed the ZEN agent on the machine. Everything 'thinks' it's in
c:\program files\novell but it's really sitting on the other drive.

Re: satellite server, how to not use C drive

Steveawaw,

I guess you could have the agent install to a different drive instead?

There is no way to install the agent to a different C , it does not give you any options.

The official method is in the documentation somewhere, I used it yesterday. We installed an extra blank disk into the server (windows 2003) and using Disk Manager set it up with a new partition that pointed to the Images folder under c:\program files\novell. When you browse to the Image folder under C:, it actually points to that new drive and therefore all your images are hosted on that new drive.
