Set the Location of the Data Vault Repository File

Set the Location of the Data Vault Repository File

Set the location of the Data Vault repository file in the
alias.conf
configuration file. Back up the
alias.conf
file before you modify it.
  1. Use a text editor to open the
    alias.conf
    file located in the following directory:
    \<Data Vault root directory>\firebird
  2. Find the line that starts with:
    meta_fb=
    The line contains the directory path and file name of the Data Vault repository file.
    For example:
    meta_fb=C:\ILM-DV~4\firebird\meta_fb.fdb
    In this example, the Data Vault repository file is:
    meta_fb.fdb
    and the file is located in the directory:
    C:\ILM-DV~4\firebird\
  3. Copy the Data Vault repository file from the location indicated in the
    meta_fb=
    line to the shared storage.
    In the example, complete the following steps:
    1. Go to
      C:\ILM-DV~4\firebird\
    2. Copy the
      meta_fb.fdb
      file to the
      <SANRootDirectory>\Meta
      directory that you created in the shared storage device.
  4. Update the
    meta_fb=
    line with the new location of the Data Vault repository file,
    <SANRootDirectory>\Meta\
    In the example, replace the old directory path
    C:\ILM-DV~4\firebird\meta_fb.fdb
    with the new directory path
    <SANRootDirectory>\Meta\meta_fb.fdb
  5. Save the
    alias.conf
    file.
  6. Use a text editor to open the
    firebird.conf
    file located in the
    \<Data Vault root directory>\firebird
    directory.
  7. Add the following line to the end of the file:
    RemoteFileOpenAbility=1
