Default file locations for Installer-No Services and tarball installations 

Locations when installing from the DataStax All-in-One Installer with No Services selected or tarball installations.

The default location of the files depend on how DataStax Enterprise is installed. The DataStax Installer installs files differently depending on whether Services or No Services option is selected during installation:
  • When Services is selected, the files are located in the same locations as package installations.
  • When No Services are selected, the files are located in the same locations as the tarball installations.
Note: The default install_location depends on whether you installed DataStax Enterprise by using the DataStax All-in-One Installer or from the binary tarball:
