Database Forests Configuration Help

A Forest consists of Stands.

Each Stand is a set of XML fragments, and is implemented by a set of compressed binary files contained within a sub-directory of the forest directory.

Forests are configured on a host and are added to the database to be accessed by HTTP, WebDAV, XDBC and ODBC Servers.

To detach a forest from a database, uncheck the attached check-box for the forest you want to detach on the Configure tab.

To attach a forest to a database, check the attached check-box for the forest you want to attach. A forest can only be attached to a single database; if a forest is already attached to a database, you must first detach it from the database to which it is attached before you can attach it to another.

If you have database rebalancing enabled, you can use the retired check-box to 'retire' a forest from the database in order to move all of its documents to the other forests and rebalance them among those forest. If you want to preserve forest documents in a database, you must first retire the forest before detaching it from the database.

Buttons and Tabs:

  • Use the Configure tab to attach/detach and retire forests from a database. You can detach a forest from the database and attach another to the database at the same time. If you are attaching a forest that contains some content, if that content was created in a database with different settings than the one it is being attached to, then the forest will begin reindexing to the current settings if reindexer enable is set to true.
