I have one main Group wise server running a post office (its agent) for the users’ mailboxes, the MTA and WIGWAG. I also have another server running another post office (for indexing only) holding the documents library. The library has its own storage structure (ie, not using the post office storage space). I need to move the documents library to the main Group wise server since the other server will be removed from the tree since it’s outdated and not scheduled to be replaced. Anybody can point me to instructions on how I can do this (couldn’t find any)?
You can’t move it as such, create a new one under the main PO, then use mass document operations to move the documents from one library to another. Ensure that any custom fields in the old library are in the new one, also document numbers will/may get changed. Because every user keeps a reference of the doc, that reference also pulls in the word lists for all those documents to the local account, so that it can be searched locally, and every one has to be updated when there is any change to the document.
Also, just like no one ever deletes old files, no one ever deletes old doc refs that are no longer used any more. Most people here manage OK with the Documents folder, and only a few have increased the limit beyond the standard 50 document history list. Hmm, searching is done by the server. Why have the server the burden of searching for documents if the users can simply double click on them? I never rub out or sand the finish on the hidden parts, though. Rightly or wrongly, I figure coating is all that’s necessary.
