How to move the default location of of the Data Folder in Version Cue CS4? We have some external drives, but when I go to "Choose" those are always greyed out!

I even added the "system" and "admin" permissions to the external drive, nada.
I also tried checking "ignore ownership" on those external drives, nothing.

Haaaalp meee!

The Data folder contains files that maintain the integrity of Version Cue projects, file versions, and metadata. You can change the location of the Data folder; however, you cannot move it to a network volume. If you move the Data folder to an external disk in Mac OS, make sure to deselect Ignore File Permissions in the disks Get Info dialog box.

Important: Shut down the Version Cue Server before you change the folder location. Do not attempt to move this folder manually or edit any of the files in the Version Cue Data folder.
Do one of the following to access Version Cue preferences:

In Mac OS, click the Version Cue icon  in the menu bar at the top of the screen, and choose Version Cue CS3 Preferences from the menu.

Open the Control Panel and click Adobe Version Cue CS3 in System Preferences (Mac OS).

Click the Locations tab in the Adobe Version Cue CS3 dialog box.
Click the Choose button next to the current Data folder location, and select a new location for the folder. You must choose a location on the computer (including external disks) where the Version Cue Server is installed.
Click OK.

Please let me know how you go.

Ugh.. big problem.

Unchecking "ignore ownership" worked. However I had to uninstall Version Cue CS4. However, no matter how many times I try to re-install VC CS4, it never shows up under "Other" in System Preferences!

It always says "successfully installed" when I run the setup on the DVD, but in fact, it does not seem to install.

Please help,

You need to start the VC server.

Can you see the Adobe VC icon in your main system preferences? If so,

Open System Preferences, click the Adobe Version Cue CS4 icon, and then click Start.

You will then need to create your administrator passwords etc.

Can I ask, why did you uninstall it?

Cheers

Also, did you install the Adobe Drive when you installed VC? VC wont run without the Adobe Drive.

Had to uninstall it because there was no way to change the "server name" once its already been set up. The previous IT person always used the exact same name as the Xserve Server name, which drove the Mac people nutty.

But I figured out my problem. I followed the advice on Adobe's forums for a reinstall (delete the "Server" folder under the Version Cue 4 folder) and reinstall. It worked!

Thx Gstylin'
