Moving alf_data

Hey Guys,

Completely new to Linux and Alfresco so bear with me. Clean install of 5.0.d on Centos 7. I want to move alf_data to a second mounted drive (sdb1). If I try to do it at the point of install I can't see or point to it from the dropdown (all I see is /). I know I'm doing something wrong here. The path of the new alf_data folder on the second drive is ls /mnt/sdb1/alfresco/alf_data. I have stopped the service using ./alfresco.sh stop., I have changed global.properties dir.root to match same, moved all alf_data to the new loc but when I restart the service it creates a new alf_data folder in the original loc. I've scoured the forums and checked folder permissions etc, edited SOLR4 xmls just in case but I'm obviously doing something wrong.

I actually changed the location to another folder on the same drive initially just to see if I could get it working but even then it just generated a new alf_data.

Any help would be appreciated !!!!
