Getting Data In

Change home path location?

New Member

I've installed Splunk on my C drive. I want the data to be store on a different drive, where I have more room. How do I change the location of the Home Path for all indexes?

This is the documentation and examples of the indexes.conf file. Create a new indexes.conf in $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/system/local (c:\program files\splunk\etc\system\local\indexes.conf). From here you can change the path location of the indexes.

Hope this helps!

I'm using Splunk 4.1. I finally found a setting in the General settings that allowed me to change the location. This not only created the folder but moved the contents from the previous folder. Very nice.

Thanks for your help, I think it may have be relevant to an earlier release.
