Introduction: 

By default, DTS agents store the packages they receive from the scalability server to a temporary storage location while the installation is in progress. This temporary location defaults to the following folder:

C:\Program Files\CA\DSM\DTS\DTA\STAGING - All version pre Client Automation 12.5

C:\Program Files\CA\SC\DTS\DTA\STAGING - Client Automation version 12.5 and above

However space may be running out on the C drive. Is there a way to change this location?

 

Question: 

How to relocate the DTS staging folder?

 

Environment:  

All versions of CA Client Automation

 

Answer: 

The staging location can be modified using the following configuration policy:

DSM > Data Transport Service (DTS) > Data Transport Agent Plugin > Staging directory location.

Create a new policy, modify the "Staging directory location" and apply the new policy to the desired agents.
