How to configure the directory for filesystem HA passivation

Hi,

I'm trying to configure the directory that Pega uses for filesystem HA passivation, but I'm having no luck. Strangely the High Availability Guide is very light on for actual detail, it talks about filesystem passivation but doesn't actually tell you how to configure it.

https://pdn.pega.com/documents/pega-722-high-availability-administration-guide

This page in the help mentions the settings to set to use either database passivation or filesystem passivation but again doesn't tell you how to configure the directory for filesystem passivation.

https://pdn.pega.com/sites/pdn.pega.com/files/help_v722/procomhelpmain.htm#engine/passivation/eng-passivation-storage-ref.htm

I have database passivation working correctly, but I would like to get crash recovery working, which from my reading, requires filesystem passivation to be configured.

Reading the Crash Recovery help page talks about setting "storage/class/passivation/rootpath" to be the directory where passivation data is written to, however when I set that, nothing was written to that directory. By default, pega seems to write file passivation data to the temp directory, which doesn't make sense to me as that won't help other nodes in the cluster use that passivation data.

https://pdn.pega.com/sites/pdn.pega.com/files/help_v722/procomhelpmain.htm#engine/high availability/crash recovery/eng-high-availability-server-crash-recovery-con.htm

I should also mention that I am triggering a Quiesce via JMX before the Pega server is shutdown

What am I missing?

Thanks,

Joel
