Although the following was part of an earlier post, we have had a number of calls where we needed to give instructions on how to delete the Search Indexes and Rebuild them
Delete the Lucene Search Indexes
Delete this folder:- C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Autodesk\VaultServer\Indexes
To do this successfully you may need to run "Services.msc" then stop the following services
- Autodesk Data Management Job Dispatch
- SQL Server (AUTODESKVAULT)
- World Wide Web Publishing
Rebuild Search Indexes
ADMS Console. Tools>Actions, Rebuild Search Index
Background on "Rebuild Search Indexes"
This command can be useful if you are experiencing slow or incomplete searches within either Vault Explorer, Vault Manufacturings, Item Master, or even Inventors "Open From Vault". Search Indexes are created by a sub-routine that Vault uses to index the SQL Databases. They are used to avoid having to run complex SQL queries for commonly used actions such as listing items or folder navigation.
The indexes are located in the default location "C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Autodesk\VaultServer\Indexes".
They can rarely become corrupted resulting in Error 226 and then Error 227 ("An error has occurred while indexing information for search. See the server log for detail"). Also, when performance degradation occurs suddenly, one thing to try is to run this command.
When you run it, clients will see this message displayed at the top of their browser. "The standard search results are incomplete because the property indexes are being created. Complete search results will be available once the file properties are fully indexed ."
How long it takes to complete will depend on server performance and the size of the database. The size of the database depends on how much information it contains and how often you run a SQL Maintenance plan.
