Kofax Front-Office Server Administrator’s Guide
Anytime after installation, you can specify a different location for these folders. Before changing
the location, do the following:

the folders you specify. If you want to limit access, add the service user account as a user
for that shared folder. For information about locating and changing the service user

Make sure that the folder is configured for read and write access. Selecting a read-only
folder for scanned images and inboxes can cause data loss.
Make sure that there are no documents in any user’s Inbox. Changing the folder while
there are documents in any Inbox can corrupt data.
Specify a full UNC path, a full drive letter path from a local drive, or a path that is relative
to the \bin folder. Mapped network drives are not certified. If you have clustered storage
in a highly available environment, you can use Microsoft Cluster Service to create file
shares accessible through a UNC path and specify the clustered storage.

If you want to change the location of user \Inboxes folders, change the value after
inboxdir to the path you want to use. Use a UNC or a mapped local or network drive path
as shown for scanjobsdir.
For example, if you want user inbox folders to be stored on the KFS1 server in a folder
with the share name KofaxShare, you would change the line as follows:
The \Inboxes folder is automatically appended to the path you specify when the
first user logs on to the Web Client. Thus, on the KFS1 server, user Inbox folders are found
As another example, if you wanted to use drive Z on the Kofax Front-Office Server, you
would change the line as follows:
Save the file.
