Hello Leon,

You can add the following settings to sakai.properties:

localIndexBase at org.sakaiproject.search.api.JournalSettings=${sakai.home}/indexwork
sharedJournalBase at org.sakaiproject.search.api.JournalSettings=<common directory accessible by all tomcats>/search

After you have restarted all Tomcats, go to the search tool in the admin workspace (add it if not there), click on Admin link and then click "Rebuild Whole Index". I hope this helps.

Subject: [Deploying Sakai] Search tool and rebuilding index


I'd like to enable "Search tool" on both of our Sakai nodes (v.2.6.2) running behind load balancer and using the same Oracle DB.

I'm testing it now on the dev. server and it seems that it's not finding announcement for example.

I've read https://confluence.sakaiproject.org/display/SEARCH/Home but find it a bit non user friendly (i.e. configuration instructions ;).

So I've several questions:

1) What other parameters should I use for  for my installation (besides search.enable=true).

2) How can I rebuild indexes? 
What command should I run? What parameter should I configure for that in sakai.properties?
Should I configure a path for indexes in sakai.properties? How would you sync. those indexes on both nodes?
If I have 2 nodes running on the same Oracle DB
(Sorry couldn't find much info on that)

Thanks in advance for any help,
Leon Kolchinsky
