We have WebSphere 5.0 FP2 installed two Clustered Windows 2000 Advanced Servers.  We have a SAN Drive that is always mapped to the active drive and Id like to set up all of our installed app on this drive.  Im brand new to WebSphere and was wondering if and how to set up something like a Virtual Directory for the Installed apps.

thanks,
Matt

Hello,
  It is pretty simple.  First, just read this page.  It basically explains you can specify a variable as the app install location.  You will be asked for it during app install.

http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/wasinfo/topic/com.ibm.websphere.base.doc/info/aes/ae/urun_rapp_inst.html

Then read this page:

http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/wasinfo/topic/com.ibm.websphere.base.doc/info/aes/ae/crun_variable.html

It explains how to set system wide variables, such as APP_INSTALL_ROOT, or what ever you want to call your variable.

Just have the property of the variable point to your SAN Drive.

Enjoy
