Need to configure Global Document Storage


Former Community Member

I need to chang the location of my Global Document storage to some common network drive. Online Docs say I need to go to Livecycle Admin Console and then navigate to Setting ->Core System Settings ->Configurations and then change the GDS

But the problem is when I log into the admin console->Settings I get no link for Core System Settings. I guess this might be a problem with the livecycle version I am using but can't be sure. Anyways, does anyone know whethet I could modify the location directly by changing some attribute in a config file or something?

Which version of LiveCycle are you using?

You are looking at the Livecyle ES documentation and your system has LC7.2.

In order to do the change, you need to run the Configuration Manager again and at one of the steps in the wizard you can reset the directories. BUT you must stop the AppServer before doing this change. Otherwise, you will corrupt your system.
