Archiving through SCP and SFTP fails for switches when Netsight is running as another user than root

Information

 
TitleArchiving through SCP and SFTP fails for switches when Netsight is running as another user than root
Symptoms
Archiving failes. In the operations window you will see a failure about not being able to create a directory in /root/configs.

archive VSP - Error making directory for Config file -- /root/configs/tmp/10_116_2_222.cfg
Environment
XMC/Netsight
Archiving
Cause
This is caused by some fixed variables XMC is using for the temporary paths when it uses SCP and SFTP. 
Resolution
It will eventually be fixed by CR net0057047, scoped for XMC 8.4.

To fix the behavior, change the root path for SCP and TFTP to match the home directory for the user XMC is using.

Additional notes
Every other action/script that uses the same directory variables would benefit from this change.
