Changing the Path of the Job Results Directory

The Job Results directory stores the job result files created when a job is initiated. By default, the Job Results directory is created when the software is installed. For example, the directory may be software_installation_directory\iDataAgent\JobResults. You can change this location by specifying a new path.

The job results directory cannot reside on a compressed drive or in the following folders:

  • software_installation_folder/Base

  • software_installation_folder/GUI

  • Log Files folder

You cannot change the path of the Job Results directory for the following clients:

  • Laptop clients

  • Pseudo-clients such as NAS clients or virtualization clients

    To change job results for pseudo-clients, change the path on the dependent backup nodes or on the proxy.


  1. From the CommCell Browser, go to Client Computers.

  2. Right-click the client, and then click Properties.

    The Client Computer Properties dialog box appears.

  3. Click Advanced.

    The Advanced Client Properties dialog box appears.

  4. On the Job Configuration tab, in the Job Results Directory box, type the new path or click Browse to select the path.

  5. Click OK twice to close the properties dialog boxes.


After you change the path to the Job Results directory, all existing job results are copied to the new path. After the job results are copied to the new path, you can delete the old job results folder.
