If you install or move Cassandra after installing FTK Central, you may need to point to its new location before you can use the KFF.

Note: In any multi-box distributed installation, you must always point to the KFF by machine name.



  1. On the FTK Central server, stop the AccessData Exterro Self Host Service.
  2. Navigate to the Forensic Tools bin folder (typically "<drive>:\Program Files\AccessData\Forensic Tools\<version>\bin").
  3. Open ADG.WeblabSelfHost.exe.config in a text editor.
  4. Find the KFFServerURLkey and change its value to point to the server housing the KFF.
    <add key="KFFServerURL" value="ServerName:9042" />
  5. Save your changes.
  6. Restart the AccessData Exterro Self Host Service.
