You can confirm that the initial Search index creation has completed successfully by checking for the presence of specific files in the index directory.
To verify that the initial index creation is complete:
Check that the
files are present in the index directory.
By default, the Search index is stored in the search/index subdirectory of the IBM Connections data directory defined at install time, for example, on Linux, /opt/IBM/LotusConnections/data/local/search/index.
Initial index creation is complete when both files are present in the index directory. Note that this means that the Search index is fully built; the social analytics index is not yet built.
If your deployment has a single Search node only
: No further action is required.
If your deployment has multiple Search nodes: Copy the completed index to the other nodes in the Search cluster. These nodes should have been stopped while the index was being built on the first node. After the index has been copied to all the nodes, start the other nodes sequentially.
