Change the location of backed-up configuration files

We can change the default directory where backup files are stored.

During administrative processes like adding a node to a cell or updating a file, configuration files are temporarily backed up to a backup location.

The default location for the backup configuration directory is profile_root/config/backup. Use the console to change the location of the repository backup directory for all types of server processes. For example, to change the setting for Application Server, do the following steps:

  1. Click Servers > Application servers in the navigation tree of the console. Then, click server name > Administration > Administration services > Repository service > Custom properties.

  2. On the Properties page, click New.

  3. On the settings page for a property, define a property for the backup file location. The key for this property is was.repository.backup. The value is the full path name to the desired location.

  4. Click OK.
