  • I've designed this configuration to use as much of the delivered workspace as possible. By only redirecting the _USTN_SITE variable, the local system folder is used, there is no need to modify the USTN_INSTALLED_WORKSPACEROOT variable as I have not changed it. Note that neither mslocal.cfg or msdir.cfg are modified.
