Linux RFS: Update the storage location

The RFS points to an absolute file location to store files.  This value is set during the installation but can be updated post installation.  This could be necessary if RFS was originally set up to store files locally on the server but needed to be modified so that RFS points to mounted drive to store files on a separate server.  For linux, the file path must be a local file path (e.g. /mnt/rfs)  and cannot be a UNC path.
