Changing the NV Server Repository Location

When you install NV Server, you specify the location in which the NV Server saves the repository contents. By default, the repository location is C:\ProgramData\HPE\NV Server. You can change this location during installation, or after installation as described below.

To change the location in which the NV Server repository is saved:

  1. Make sure that no tests are currently running on any of the NV Test Managers that are connected to the NV Server.
  2. On the NV Server, open the configuration file <installation_folder>\NVServer\ApacheTomcat\webapps\snv\WEB-INF\classes\snv.properties in a text editor.

    By default, <installation_folder> is C:\Program Files\HPE\NV\.

  3. Locate the property file.content.repository.root, and change the value as required.
  4. Save the configuration file.
  5. Restart the service: Apache Tomcat NV Server.
  6. Move any existing repository files to the new location.
  7. Log on to the Test Manager to continue working, if needed.
