Change RSA AM 7.1 SP2 Allocated Disk Space for Instance Replication

I've deployed three VMs with approx 40GB of disk space available to RSA AM 7.1 and it's database. The problem is that by default RSA AM, is configured to use a maximum of 100GB, therefore there's a chance that it could consume all of the available disk and consequently halt it's services.

The fix can be found in the Troubleshooting section of the RSA AM Administrative Guide under "Freeing Disk Space Allocated for Logging on a Replica Instance". RSA recommends allowing AM to utilise 75% of the available disk space, therefore if you have 30GB free after install then you should use 22.5GB. Unfortunately the command line doesn't appear to like the decimal point so I used 22GB.

You'll need to open a command prompt and go to the 'utils' folder in the RSA install folder and run the following command where 22 is the size that you wish to dedicate to RSA AM's logs.

rsautil manage-database -a change-max-size -f archived_trans_files -s 22
You'll be prompted to confirm your password twice and then you should receive "Done..."

That's all for now.
