Pinned topic How to change ISA Workspace directory after install of ISA workbench

‏2011-08-05T14:17:15Z |
I am having an issue with ISA, where the PATHs are too long. My machine is centrally managed using a PROFILE and I am running into issue since the PATH are too long and I am unable to log into my profile because of this. Windows XP has a known issue, where it allows you to install into PATH length longer and then when we try to access, it does not allow to access.

I have installed twice and did not get the option choose the directory to set my workspace.
1. How can I change the workspace path now?
2. Also the problem came from files in Symptom Database and Health Centre. I think IBM should also look into reducing the path length for these libraries to avoid this issue.

Thanks.

    Can you try setting the current directory to something manageable?

    subst Q: C:\very\long\path\created\by\eclipse\or\some\other\application

    Where Q: is a new drive letter and C:\very\long\path\created\by\eclipse\or\some\other\application is the very long path.

    Let me know if that helps
    Best,

    You can change the workspace location by modifying rcp.data property in rcp/rcplauncher.properties file.
    The safest way to change it is:
    • shutdown the workbench
    • move the workspace to a new location
    • update the rcp.data property to point to the new location
    • start the workbench
