In some situations you might want to use a different staging directory on a remote host when installing an agent.
When you add a server to the system, the system sets the server's
STAGING_DIR property to the directory /temp/stage for Microsoft Windows targets and /var/tmp/stage for UNIX. During agent installation, the system temporarily copies the files it needs to the staging directory. When the system has finished installing the agent, it automatically deletes the files.
The directory specified by the
STAGING_DIR property must meet the following requirements:
If the default directory does not meet these requirements, change the
STAGING_DIR property to point to a directory that does meet the requirements. For more information on changing properties, see Working with properties.
