Updated: August 22, 2005

Applies To: Windows Server 2003 R2

On the File Locations page, you can view and change the default installation directories for Active Directory Application Mode (ADAM) data (.dit) files and recovery (.log) files.

By default, ADAM data files and recovery files are installed on the destination computer in the following directory:

\%ProgramFiles%\Microsoft ADAM\instancename\data

where instancename equals the ADAM instance name that you specified on the Instance Name page.

By default, ADAM program files and administration tools are installed in the following directory:


To specify install file locations for ADAM data or recovery files

  • On the File Locations page, do one of the following:

    • Click Next to accept the default file locations.

    • Type new file locations in Data files or Data recovery files, and then click Next.


  • If the directory paths that you specify do not already exist, the ADAM Setup Wizard creates them for you.

  • The ADAM Setup Wizard does not accept environmental variables in file location paths.
