17.2 Rebuilding the Lucene Index

The Lucene index provides access to all data in your Novell Teaming site. If it becomes damaged or out of date for some reason, you can rebuild it. Users might first notice a problem with the Lucene index because they cannot find information that they know should be available on the Teaming site. If you are running multiple Lucene Index servers, follow the instructions in Section 17.3, Performing Maintenance on a High Availability Lucene Index.

  1. Log in to the Teaming site as the Teaming administrator

  2. On the Workspace toolbar, click Manage > Site Administration, then click Manage the Search Index.

    Manage the Search Index page
  3. To reindex the entire Teaming site, select Home Workspace.

    Depending on the size of your Teaming site, this can be a very time-consuming process.


    Select one or more parts of your Teaming site to reindex.

  4. Click OK to start the indexing.

    Users can still access the Teaming site during the indexing process, but search results might not be accurate until the index has been completely rebuilt.

    A message notifies you when indexing is complete.
