    Hi

    We have low disk space on one of our servers C drives.  Is there a simple way to move the Delphix Connector folder from C to another drive whilst you have VDBs on that server?  Also how would you tell delphix to use that new location for new VDBs?

    Thanks in advance

    There is a way to move the connector to a new drive, but it is not something enabled in the GUI.
    It would require a support call.  This is a known issue and there is a ticket in the works to implement this functionality in the future.

    This can be done without a support call with the following steps:

    - Stop the DelphixConnector service: "net stop delphixconnector"
    - Uninstall the DelphixConnector
    - Reinstall the DelphixConnector specifying the new location
    - Log into the the Delphix CLI to change the toolkitPath of the relevant path

    The steps to update the toolkit in the CLI look like:

    delphixaddress> cd host
    dephixaddress host> ls
    Objects
    NAME            ADDRESS      
    192.168.1.100     192.168.1.100
    Children
    privilegeElevation
    delphixaddress host> select 192.168.1.100
    delphixaddress host '192.168.1.100'> update
    delphixaddress host '192.168.1.100' update *> set toolkitPath=D:\Delphix\DelphixConnector
    delphixaddress host '192.168.1.100' update *> commit
        Dispatched job JOB-15
        HOST_UPDATE job started for "192.168.1.100".
        HOST_UPDATE job for "192.168.1.100" completed successfully.
