The first step in this example is creating the ADP folder on a Windows 2003 server.

  1. Open Windows Explorer and enter %ALLUSERSPROFILE% in the address bar, then press Enter.
    The complete path defined by that variable appears in the address bar.

  2. Create an APD folder in the All Users folder for the environment file.
  3. In ServiceNow, navigate to Discovery Definition > Properties.
  4. Locate the Application discovery location for Windows based systems property (glide.discovery.application_discovery.windows_location).
  5. Using the environment variable, enter the entire path in the Windows file location property, including the APD folder you just created.
    In this example, enter %ALLUSERSPROFILE%\APD, which resolves to C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\APD on Windows 2003.
  6. Click Save.
  7. Continue the procedure from Create the Environment File and copy the completed environment file from that task into the APD folder you created.
