Move Data Folders to Another Location on the Server

Move Cortex XSOAR data folders to a different location on the server.
Follow these steps to move the directories installed on the Cortex XSOAR server to another location.
Let
<new path>
mark the base path to which to move the Cortex XSOAR server files.
Always use the
cp
command with the
-p
flag to retain the original file permissions.
Use the following commands to only move the data.
  1. Stop the Cortex XSOAR service using the appropriate command for your OS.
    • systemctl stop demisto
    • sudo service demisto stop
  2. Move
    /var/lib/demisto
    to
    <new path>
    /var/lib/demisto
    .
    cp -pfr /var/lib/demisto
    <new path>
    /var/lib
  3. Edit the
    /etc/demisto.conf
    file.
    Contents of the
    /etc/demisto.conf
    file are in JSON format and can hold additional data than what is shown in the example.
    { "Server": { "HttpsPort": 443 }, "folders": { "lib": "{new path}/var/lib/demisto" }, "DB": { "DatabaseDir": "{new path}/var/lib/demisto/data", "IndexDir": "{new path}/var/lib/demisto/data" } }
  4. Start the Cortex XSOAR service using the appropriate command for your OS.
    • systemctl start demisto
    • sudo service demisto start
  5. (Optional)
    Verify that the process was performed successfully and remove the original directory
    /var/lib/demisto
    .
