To Move a Storage Area, When Using a UNC Path
On the remote computer you want to move the storage area to, create and share a folder, so that it can be accessed and written to by the ProjectWise Design Integration Server and/or ProjectWise Caching Server.
For example, create and share a folder called C:\newsharedfolder.
- Back in ProjectWise Administrator, right-click a storage area and select Properties.
- You can either keep the computer specified in the Computer name or IP address field the same, or change it as necessary. All that is required is that this field specifies a computer on which a ProjectWise Design Integration Server or ProjectWise Caching Server is installed and running.
In the Path field, enter the UNC path to the shared folder on the remote computer that you want to move the storage area to.
Change C:\storagearea to \\remotecomputer\newsharedfolder\ In this case you are saying that you want to change the location of the storage area, from its local folder on the ProjectWise Design Integration Server and/or ProjectWise Caching Server, to the root of the specified shared folder on another computer. Change \\remotecomputer\oldsharedfolder\ to \\remotecomputer\newsharedfolder\ In this case you are saying that you want to change the location of the storage area from one shared folder to the root of another shared folder, on the same remote computer. Change \\remotecomputerA\oldsharedfolder\ to \\remotecomputerB\newsharedfolder\storage In this case you are saying that you want to change the location of the storage area, from a shared folder on one remote computer, to a subfolder of a shared folder on another remote computer.
When you specify to move the storage area to a subfolder of the shared folder, it will be created when you click OK. (Unlike when creating a new storage area, ProjectWise lets you specify an existing folder when moving a storage area.)
A warning message appears, informing you that after you change the storage area location, that you need to manually move the contents from the old location to the new location.
- Click OK to accept the change.
