SecureSphere local directory

  • 1.  SecureSphere local directory

    Posted 12-02-2020 07:54
    The agent is already installed in a Windows server, however, the default SecureSphere agent local directory was in Drive C wherein the space is very limited as it has only 40GB in capacity. I am planning to move the Imperva derectory (C:\Program Files (x86)\Imperva\RemoteAgent\datafiles\Id_0) to Drive D.

    Is this possible? if yes, How?

    Thank you very much.

    Hi Marvin,

    You can use this procedure from this Knowledgebase article: link

    How to change the location of the agent log files?
    This can be done by using the parameter <logger-dir>.

    Under: Main > Setup > Agents
    Setting TAB
    Advanced configuration section (click the arrow to expand)
    Below text appears:

    <agent-config>

    <logger-level>log_warning</logger-level>

    <logger-dir>.</logger-dir>
    ...

    You should refer to the <logger-dir> tags, the value of dot refers to the default location where the agent is installed.
    To change it, fill in the desired location, for example:

    <logger-dir>F:\some\desired\dir</logger-dir>


    See the screenshot below for a change example.
     

    Changing the location of the agent data queue files could be done by using parameter  <files-dir>.
    IMPORTANT NOTE -  this parameter is used for data queue local storage path when the agent is disconnected from Gateway. When the connection restored, the data file (pcap) is sent to the Gateway.

    Under: Main > Setup > Agents
    Setting TAB
    Advanced configuration section (click the arrow to expand)
    Below text appears:

    <agent-config>

    <logger-level>log_warning</logger-level>

    <files-dir>.</files-dir>
    ...

    You should refer to the <files-dir> tags, the value of dot refers to the location where the agent is installed.
    To change it, fill in the desired location, for example:

    <files-dir>F:\some\desired\dir</files-dir>

    Restart the agent after changing the settings.
    Best,
