Changing the Location of the CommServe Cache Directory

You can change the location of the CommServe cache directory. This operation is useful when the current location does not have sufficient disk space.

Ensure that the new directory is always located in the CommServe computer. For example, the new directory can be in a different drive.


  1. From the CommCell Console ribbon, on the Tools tab, click Add/Remove Software > Software Cache Configuration.

  2. In the Software Cache Configuration dialog box, in the Please Specify Cache Directory box, specify the new directory path for the CommServe cache.


    If the CommServe was installed in a clustered environment, make sure that the directory resides on a shared drive.

  3. Click Commit Cache.

    When the commit operation finishes, a message is displayed indicating whether the operation succeed or not.

  4. Click OK.

    The next time you download the software from the CommCell Console, the software will be downloaded to the new location.
