Expedition Changing /data, /home/userSpace, and Spark Temporary Data Structure locations

L0 Member



I am trying to install Expedition on a new Ubuntu server and we have a separate drive setup for storage on here. The program that we are using, initSetup.sh, which we got from this guide defaults the storage location to the local drive instead of a separate drive. I found where the directories are made for /data and /home/userSpace and modified that to create it in the new location but I cannot find a way to point it to these new locations without utilizing system links on the linux server. Is there a way to have the Expedition software look to these locations or install on a separate drive?

Hello @Chris_Thornton 


You are not able to mount and map the drive? Maybe this link will help you with what you are trying to achieve.



Hi @azuniga 


The the drive is mapped, but under a different location. The location that expedition wants to store the data in is /data and /home/userSpace but I want to have these locations be something like /second_drive/data and /second_drive/userSpace instead. I can do system links from /data to /second_drive/data and /home/userSpace to /second_drive/home/userSpace but I would rather not use system links if I can. Is there a way to change the location within Expedition, either the installer or though the GUI, to use a different location for these folders?
