Change the location of temporary workspace files
OverviewThe administrative console workspace allows client applications to navigate the configuration. Each workspace has its own repository location defined either in the system property or the property passed to a workspace manager when creating the workspace: workspace.user.root or workspace.root, which is calculated as %workspace.root%/user_ID/workspace/wstemp.
The default workspace root is calculated based on the user installation root: %user.install.root%/wstemp. You can change the default location of temporary workspace files by doing the following:
- Distributed platforms: Change the setting for the system variable workspace.user.root or workspace.root so its value is no longer set to the default location. Set the system variable when launching a Java process using the -D option. For example, to set the default location the full path of the root of all users' directories, use the following option:-Dworkspace.user.root=full_path_for_root_of_all_user_directories
