Applies to: Centrify Deployment Manager 5.1
 
Question:

Is it possible to replace /var/centrifydm with another folder in Deployment Manager 5.1?
 
Answer:
 
Yes.
 
1. Bring up registry editor from the Windows machine which hosts Deployment Manager 5.1:

  Start -> Run -> regedit

2. Traverse to the path:

  HKCU\Software\Centrify\Deployment Manager\

3. Create a String value named WorkingFolder

4. Set its value to the path of new folder e.g. /home/sp/centrifydm

5. Bring up Deployment Manager. When being prompted for a user who will be running the deployment, choose either root or a local user with sudo privileges. 
The new folder /home/sp/centrifydm will be created automatically, replacing the default /var/centrifydm
