Information in this document applies to any platform.
While rare, when the WCC server is configured for ORACLETEXTSEARCH or DATABASE.FULLTEXT, an active index becomes corrupt.
The index is corrupted to the point that searches either outright fail (and generate an ORA or DRG error) or return incorrect results:
- items that should be returned in the search results are not listed
- items that shouldn't be returned in the search results are listed
- no items are returned
When the active index is corrupt and requires a full collection rebuild, searches will not work until the index is completely rebuilt.
Small content repositories the impact is less as the rebuild will only take several hours or less. Large repositories (those in the millions) the time before the rebuild is complete may take several days or weeks.
This Knowledge Note will provide steps to allow metadata searches to work while the rebuild is active.
