EM 12c, EM 13c: How to Change the Location of the stage Directory For Patching In Enterprise Manager Cloud Control (Doc ID 1610321.1)

Last updated on MAY 10, 2021

Applies to:

Enterprise Manager Base Platform - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


The /tmp space is not large enough to complete the patching and cloning in Enterprise Manager (EM) Cloud Control as required.

Deployment Procedures use %emd_emstagedir% by default; emd_emstagedir get its value from the property value emStageDir.

In 13c this is shown as the Working Directory.

The temp directory is set by default to /tmp in the file AGENT_INST/sysman/config/


 You have the option to change the stage location when you run a Deployment Procedure, but you may also want to change value of %emd_emstagedir% .
