Configuring FST storage location

I’ve been going through the various EOS/XrootD configuration files and I can’t figure out how to tell the FST system where to setup its files.
https://eos-docs.web.cern.ch/develop.html#deployment
seems to assume that you will always do so in the /fst directory.
Is there some way to tell it to look elsewhere?

I think I may have found it on
https://eos-docs.web.cern.ch/quickstart/admin/configure.html
under FST.

eosfstregister /data default:4

but I couldn’t find mention of it on the deployment.

Maybe you can try “eos fs add <uuid> <hostname>:<port> <path>” to add a filesystem to eos (The uuid can be specified by “echo <uuid> > <path>/.eosfsuuid”)
