How to relocate the Rational Test Control Panel workspace

Technote (FAQ)


Question

How do you move the IBM Rational Test Control Panel (RTCP) workspace area?

Cause

  • You have installed RTCP on a server.

  • You wish to know where the workspace is stored, where the deployed projects are located.

  • You need to relocate the workspace files to a new location where there is more free storage.

Answer

Consider the following steps.

  1. Stop the RTCP process or service.

    On all Windows systems stop the service IBM Rational Test Control Panel.
    On non-Windows systems run bin/shutdown.sh or consult your system administrator.

  2. Locate the container.server.properties file in the RTCP installation classes folder.

    For versions 8.5.1.0 and newer

    On Windows systems typically at:
    C:\Program Files\IBM\RationalTestControlPanel\usr\servers\RTCPServer\apps\RTCP.war\WEB-INF\classes

    On non-Windows systems typically at:
    /opt/IBM/RationalTestControlPanel/usr/servers/RTCPServer/apps/RTCP.war/WEB-INF/classes

    For versions before 8.5.1.0

    On Windows systems typically at:
    C:\Program Files\IBM\RationalTestControlPanel\webapps\RTCP\WEB-INF\classes

    On non-Windows systems typically at:
    /opt/IBM/RationalTestControlPanel/webapps/RTCP/WEB-INF/classes

  3. Edit container.server.properties and modify the value of workingDirectory as required.

    Windows systems example:
    workingDirectory=C\:\\IBM\\RTCP-Workspace

    Non-Windows systems example:
    workingDirectory=/var/rtcp

  4. Move the workspace files to the new location.

  5. Re-start the RTCP process or service.

    On all Windows systems start the service IBM Rational Test Control Panel.
    On non-Windows systems run bin/startup.sh or consult your system administrator.

NOTES

  • An alternative method to steps 2, 3 and 4 above is to move the workspace to a new location and create a symbolic link from the original folder to point to the new folder. Consult your system administrator for assistance.

  • The configuration of the RTCP workspace location might change in future releases.
