18.3 Managing Search Nodes

This dialog lets you control access to the Filrsearch appliances (search nodes) and is integral to certain index maintenance operations.

For example, you can take one Lucene node out of service for maintenance while other Lucene nodes continue to operate. Then you can synchronize the out-of-date Lucene node with the current indexing data.
