Changing the warehouse location during the migration

Hello !
I am planning on moving inforouter to a new server. My new server has a storage array attached to it but the drive letters are different. How is this going to work?
Is inforouter somehow able to detect the new location of the warehouse (I doubt it but I thought I might ask)?

Dear Ms. Harris,

Even though we do not recommend changing deployment models during a migration, it is possible to switch out the warehouse location during a migration.
When you move everything across to a new server and also move the warehouse to a different path, inforouter cannot possibly know where you actually moved it so you have to make a few additional changes.

Example: if the warehouse was located on E:\WH on the original server, it must also reside on the same path on the new server. If this is not possible, you have to adjust the warehouse path settings in a file called "warehousepaths.xml".

Just like all the other configuration files, this file also lives in the folder called inforouter/config.

Hope this helps.

The Guru.
