Info

Summary: This page describes how to modify the location used for the Apache Tomcat related temp folder for each AIP Node. This action is not required for normal functioning of the AIP Console and is therefore only something to be done in specific circumstances (described below).

Introduction

The AIP Console uses Apache Tomcat as the back end engine to power its required functionality. For each AIP Node package that is installed, an Apache Tomcat temporary folder is created in the following location:

Code Block
languagetext
<installation>\AipNode\data\tomcat

This default location for "temporary" data may not be suited to your own environment - i.e. you may have your own specific location on disk in which to store temporary data for easy cleanup or management. If this is the case, you can modify the location used by the AIP Node Apache Tomcat instance - see the instructions below.

Change the temporary folder location

The temporary folder location can be changed as follows:

If the AIP Node is running, stop it by closing the CMD or Terminal window or stopping the Windows Service and then open the following file with a text editor:

Code Block
languagetext
<installation>\AipNode\data\aip-node-app.properties

Locate the following lines in the .properties file:

Code Block
languagetext
# Tomcat base directory. If not specified, a temporary directory is used.
server.tomcat.basedir=C:/CAST/AIP_CONSOLE_INSTALL/AipNode/data/tomcat

Change the path to the desired folder, for example:

Code Block
languagetext
# Tomcat base directory. If not specified, a temporary directory is used.
server.tomcat.basedir=C:/CAST/AipConsole/SomeOtherPlace/tomcat

Restart the AIP Node - you can either use the shortcut on your desktop or in the Windows start menu

or run (i.e. double click) the following batch file:

Code Block
languagetext
<AIP_console_installation>\AipNode\tools\runAipNode.bat

or re-start the Windows Service. The new temporary folder will now be used.
