Dialog Instance writing and reading from wrong global directory



I have just completed a HA installation of ECC 6 on a Windows 2008 cluster. On node B we have the CI installed and on node A we have an additional DI installed. The installation drive for these local instances is the I drive in both cases. The ASCS instance is installed on the clustered N drive.

For some reason when a job runs on the Dialog Instance installed on node A it writes it log file to the I:\usr\sap\<SID>\SYS\global\100JOBLG directory rather that to the
<sap cluster hostname>\sapmnt\<SID>\SYS\global\100JOBLG directory (which would equate to N:\usr\sap\<SID>\SYS\global\100JOBLG). Similarly when I try a read a job log from the DI on node A it tries to read from I:\usr\sap\<SID>\SYS\global\100JOBLG and when it can find the log it gives an error.

If anybody has any ideas as to how I can reconfigure the instance to read and write to the correct directory that would be much appreciated.
