This procedure describes how to set the folder locations that a Spectrum server uses for its Spectrum Product Data (SPD).
We recommend different locations for the Spectrum install and the Spectrum archive and extract folders. You must be a Spectrum Technology Platform administrator (admin) to perform this task.
The Spectrum Technology Platform has Command Line Interface (CLI) commands for setting the SPD file archive location and for setting the extract location. You only need to run the product data extract, and product data archive commands once to set the extract and archive locations. Spectrum remembers these locations for future Spectrum Product Data (SPD) installations.
To set the data file archive location and extract locations:
- Verify that the Spectrum Technology Platform server is running before you begin.
- Open a command-line window.
Connect to the Spectrum server by typing this command:
connect --h servername:port --u username --p password --s SSLtrueFalseFor example,
connect --h myserver:8080 --u admin --p myPassword1 --s false
Establish the extract location for the data on the server by typing:
productdata extract register --p product --d directoryFor example,
productdata extract register --p platform --d E:/SpatialFiles/SpectrumDataStorage
Establish the archive location for the data on the server by typing:
productdata archive register --p product --d directoryFor example,
productdata archive register --p platform --d E:/SpatialFiles/Archive
You are now ready to install Spectrum Product Data (SPD). For details, see Installing Spectrum Product Data
