The partition nickname allows you to map users to a logical partition name regardless of the physical path. When setting up user accounts and specifying the message store for a user, you can use the partition nickname. The name you enter must be an alphanumeric name and must use lowercase letters.
To create and manage the partition, the user ID used to run the server must have permission to write to the location specified in the physical path.
After adding a partition, you must stop then restart the server to refresh the configuration information.
Command Line, To add a partition to the store at the command line:
configutil -o store.partition.nickname.path -v path
where nickname is the logical name of the partition and path indicates the absolute path name where the partition is stored.
To specify the path of the default primary partition:
configutil -o store.partition.primary.path -v path
