Last updated on MAY 31, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle WebCenter Content - Version: 7.5.1 to 7.5.1 - Release: Stellent to Stellent
IBM AIX on POWER Systems (64-bit)
IBM AIX Based Systems (64-bit)

Symptoms

While the issue was previously reported when using the search index rebuild functionality provided within the Repository Manager admin applet, it can also be reproduced as in the following example:

Run MKVDK manually per the following (your paths and bulkload data will likely be different):

1. Run term command: export LIBPATH=/opt/apps/stellent/idc/shared/search/vdk4/_rs6k43/bin/:/opt/apps/stellent2cons/idc/shared/search/vdk4/_rs6k43/bin/filters

2. Change to the Verity bin folder by term command: cd opt/apps/stellent/idc/shared/search/vdk4/_rs6k43/bin

3. Run Verity mkvdk via term command: mkvdk -vdkhome /opt/apps/stellent2cons/idc/shared/search/vdk4/common -update -create -style /opt/apps/stellent2cons/idc/search/index2/style/ -logFile /opt/apps/stellent2cons/idc/weblayout/groups/secure/logs/verity/search.log -loglevel 127 -datefmt YMD -locale englishx -collection /opt/apps/stellent2cons/idc/search/index2/intradocbasic/ -bulk /opt/apps/stellent2cons/idc/search/index2/bulkload/110043.txt

Output from Step 3:

mkvdk done
search/index2/bulkload/150136.txt
mkvdk - Verity, Inc. Version 4.5.1 (_rs6k43, Jan 28 2004)
mkvdk: internal error 0: the collection already exists
mkvdk: internal error -2: couldn't set create flag
mkvdk: internal error -2: failed to perform setup
mkvdk done


4. Run the previous command again. but without the "-create" option.

Output from step 4:

mkvdk done
