    Problem Symptoms:

    This is not possible.

    -- Keep the default value of the variable $BASE in Aleph installation kit configuration file param_bash.ini.

    -- Aleph software and configuration (a-tree and u-tree)
    -- 3rd-party software products

    Source of information:
    Document " Requirements for Aleph 22 Installation Version 22", section "File System and Disk Space"

    "A file system named /exlibris, with a minimum size of 40 GB, is mandatory.
    It will be used exclusively for all software and configuration tables and files that will be installed by Ex Libris.
    The /exlibris file system must be mounted directly to the server,
    and cannot be a soft or symbolic link to any alternatively named file system."
