Description of problem:
Customer has requested for IPA to be more flexible when comes to it's datastore.

They are hoping that they can point to 
 
/data/dirsrv
/data/ipa

rather than the hardcoded path, i.e.
/var/lib/dirsrv
/var/lib/ipa

Comment 3 Petr Vobornik 2016-08-03 11:58:11 UTC
per triage on Aug 2, IdM team agreed to not implement this change. This is standard Linux behavior. If storing on different volume is needed then the suggested way is to prepare appropriate mount points/bind mounts.
