Note: This applies to any Ektron version that uses SharePoint.

This KB article shows how to change the EktronSearchData folder drive/path for Microsoft Search Server. 

  1. Go to the Search Config UI tool ( Ektron.Cms.Search.Config.UI.exe ), commonly found here: C:\Program Files (x86)\Ektron\CMS400vX\Utilities\SearchServer on your CMS server and run through the re-register process. 
  2. Go to Advanced Settings and reference the following screenshot.


  3. Go to the Data Directory and adjust the drive letter or folder path where you want the EktronSearchData folder to go. After changing it, you can re-register your site.

If you want all of your sites that are connected to the Search Server to also have the same path you will need to repeat the process for all them.
