You can use ArcGIS Server Manager to specify the name and location of the configuration store for your on-premises deployment. To do so, follow these steps:
You cannot change the configuration store location to a subfolder of the existing configuration store location, for example, changing from a file path in the format \share\path1 to \share\path1\path2 is not supported.
Also note that the configuration store in a cloud-based deployment is read-only and cannot be edited. For more information about cloud-based deployments, see ArcGIS Server on cloud platforms.
- Open ArcGIS Server Manager and log in.
- Click Site > GIS Server > Configuration Store.
- In the Configuration Store module, specify the name and location of the configuration store. You can browse to a directory on disk or type its path.
In a multiple-machine deployment, the GIS server machines need to access the configuration store through a shared network directory.
- Click Apply. This restarts ArcGIS Server.
After ArcGIS Server restarts, the name and location of the configuration store are updated, and the new file path location appears in the Configuration Store module.
