[Quick Tip] How to restore the search engine in Lotus Connections

To restore the search engine, follow these steps:

  • Stop the search server.
  • Delete the index directory and all its subdirectories from the IBM Lotus Connections search data directory.
  • Copy the backup index and all its subdirectories into the search directory.
  • Restore the HOMEPAGE.SR_FILESCONTENT table. Import the previously-exported contents of the HOMEPAGE.SR_FILESCONTENT table if available.
