Hello All,

We would like to change the archive path on our PI server, as the current folder is nearing its full space. Currently we have auto archive creation enabled on our PI server, where the Auto Archive File Root parameter is specified. I have gone through the below KB article that says about changing the archive path.

KB00323 - How do you change the default archive path?

It has been mentioned that the auto archive creation should not be configured. I would like to know if the steps mentioned in this article is applicable for our version of PI server 3.4.390.18.


We currently do not have any empty archives created in our server. Also please note that our PI server is a collective, and we would like to perform the change on both the servers.

I would also like to know if we would need any restart of archive sub system or any other service for the change to take effect.

Kindly help me with the procedure.
