Section Defines Allowable Locations for Storage Areas

This section lists the local and/or network locations where storage areas hosted by a ProjectWise Design Integration Server or ProjectWise Caching Server can be created.

Before you can create a storage area on a particular server, you must first define at least one allowable storage location in this section of that server's DMSKRNL.CFG file. You can define more than one allowable storage location if needed. If no locations are defined, you will not be able to create any storage areas on that server.

To make it easy to add a location, the ProjectWise Design Integration Server and ProjectWise Caching Server installers prompt you to define a default allowable storage location during installation. This information gets added to the DMSKRNL.CFG file.

You can also open the DMSKRNL.CFG file to manually add, modify, or remove allowable storage locations.

You can define an allowable storage location to be:

  • a local folder:


  • an entire drive:


  • a network location:


See the DMSKRNL.CFG file itself for configuration examples.
