The qreport directory is used as a temporary holding area for UNIX and iSeries data waiting to be processed. Once the data is processed the files containing the data are deleted from the qreport directory. UNIX and iSeries boxes are known for sending an unusually large amount of data and if for some reason the data is not processed out in a timely manner, the customer could run into disk space issues. One workaround is to move the qreport to a drive that has adequate space to handle this type of situation.


To change the location of the qreport folder add a new directory location to the mk.options file. 


1. On the Central Computer go to program files\NetIQ Security Manager\One Point\mk.options  (Use notepad and backup the original file before modifying it).

2. Open the mk.options file add the new location. E.g.  report/directory= t:\\QREPORT
The Security Manager service must have access to the new location.   Also, it is case sensitive.

3. Restart the Security Manager and Core services on the Central Computer.

4. If needed repeat steps 1 thru 3 on any additional Central computer that are processing UNIX or iSeries archival data.
