Bandwidth reduction through BWM

3 years ago, by dbeckstrom in Bandwidth Manager Forum

I've been working on a project of implementing our BWM installation to a new server on a new fiber link. Our new link is a 100 Meg connection. Testing on the link with the BWM service stopped allows me to get access to the full 100 Meg capacity of the link on the BWM server.

I would like to move the Bandwidth Manager database files. They are installed in the windows ProgramData folder by default and it doesn't appear that is adjustable. Is there any way to specify an alternate location for the database files? Thanks in advance, Darcy
