Issue:
We are trying to install Autosys client on Red hat Linux machine.
We need the installation files to be created under different directory other that /opt/CA.
Can we change the default installation path (/opt/CA) ?
Environment:
CA WAAE 11.3.6 SP6 on Linux RedHat
Same question applies to any other Autosys or Common Services Installation
 
Cause:
By Default,  Common components are installed in /opt/CA/SharedComponents directory
Resolution:
Solution is to create a directory tree, for example /apps/CA/SharedComponents
Before running the installation, export variable CASHCOMP to point to the new directory like that:
CASHCOMP=/apps/CA/SharedComponents
export CASHCOMP

Then the installer will be able to detect the new location for the Common Components ( CCS ) and it will use it for this brand new installation

To change the default location of Autosys, choose the  "Custom" installation and you will be prompted to enter the new location for Autosys
Additional Information:
If any Common Component Services had been previously installed , you can no longer change the CCS directory.
These above steps only apply to a brand new installation
