Moving ArcGIS Portal Directories

Question asked by smithc on Jun 26, 2018

Hello

 

We have recently upgraded our enterprise environment from 10.3.1 to 10.6. Due to the way the portal was initial configured the Portal directories (excluding "content") are located on the server at C:\arcgisportal. This folder includes the following subfolders:

  • backup
  • db
  • dsdata
  • index
  • logs
  • pgsql_9.6.3
  • temp

 

I want to move these subfolders to a new drive (E:\) we have configured on the server E:\arcgisportal. I know how to move the db, index, logs and temp folder via the portaladmin directory but I can see no way to move the other 3 subfolders :

  • backup
  • dsdata
  • pgsql_9.6.3. 

 

Is it possible to move these subfolders via the portaladmin directory or via some other means without breaking the portal or should they be left alone and kept in their original location. 

 

I see there is a "portal-config.properties" file on the portal server at C:\Program Files\ArcGIS\Portal\etc which looks like this:

 

#
# At 10.2.1 you must use the Adminstrative API for Portal to add or update configuration properties.
# This file is used internally by the Portal.
# PLEASE DO NOT CHANGE THIS FILE DIRECTLY. USE THE PORTAL ADMIN DIRECTORY INSTEAD.

# the 'nodeagent' section is used to configure the Portal daemon/service
nodeagent.jmx.port=7099

# the 'dir' section is used to configure the directories required for Portal
dir.data=C:/arcgisportal/

 

I am guessing the the locvation of these folders has something to do withn the dir.data property in this file but I am unsure if I should be messing with it as I can see no way of changing this property via the portaladmin directory?

 

Any suggestions or help appreciated.

 

cheers
