About this task
Two types of command are provided for administering the Search application:
An MBean used to check out, update, and check in copies of the Search configuration file, search-config.xml
. This file is used to control many aspects of Search configuration, such as:
- The location of the Search index
- The location of the IBM LanguageWare® dictionaries used by Search
- The configuration of the file download and conversion service used by Search when indexing file attachments
The SearchCellConfig MBean also provides the user with a means of checking out and checking in the Search Ajax proxy configuration file, proxy-search-config.xml
For more information about the syntax of the SearchCellConfig commands and a description of what each command does, see SearchCellConfig commands
An MBean used to create, retrieve, update, and delete scheduled task definitions of the following Search operations. This includes a facility to trigger one of these operations.

For more information about the syntax of the SearchService commands and a description of what each command does, see SearchService commands
