Redirect Avamar System State Backup to another Drives

On Windows 2003 AVAMAR client uses the NTBackup Utility to create a backup of the system state, it stores this backup in var in the avamar client install directory (C:\Program Files\avs\var\).  If the space on that drive is limited you can set an attribute systemstatefile with a value of the full path to store the back up –

To modify the location for just one client individually:

1. Log on the Windows client 
2. Go to the AVAMAR_INSTALL_PATH\avs\var directory 
3. Create a file named avtar.cmd 
4. Edit this avtar.cmd file with notepad and add the parameter as given below: 


For example, 
-- systemstatefile="D:\Avamar_BKF\systemstate.bkf"
Notes: You must now include this location as part of the dataset of the File System backup
