Change the Data Folder

If you are running PKI Services Manager on Windows, you can change the PKI Services Manager data folder.

Note: Changing the data folder forces the service to restart. When you complete this procedure, the console closes and the service restarts automatically.

To change the data folder

  1. From the File menu, select Set Data Folder.
  2. Select Use custom.
  3. Use the browse button to select a folder and click OK.

    Note: The folder must already exist, and must be on the computer running PKI Services Manager; network locations are not supported.

  4. PKI Services Manager checks for an existing pki_config file in the new location.



    An existing configuration file is present

    PKI Services Manager makes no change to the new location and uses the existing settings in the new location.


    No configuration file is found

    You can choose:

    Copy existing - PKI Services Manager copies the entire contents of your existing base directory to the new location.


    Create new - PKI Services Manager generates a new default configuration file, map file, and public/private key pair in the new location.

  5. Click OK.


Note: The new base directory path is saved in the Windows registry. The registry setting remains if you uninstall or upgrade the server, so subsequent installations continue to use the new location. The registry setting is created in:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Attachmate\ReflectionPKI. (Or, on 64-bit systems: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Attachmate\ReflectionPKI.)
