Deleting documents from EMC Centera Repositories in IBM FileNet Image Services

Technote (FAQ)


What is the procedure to delete documents from an IBM Image Services system that employs EMC Centera Repositories?


The IBM Image Services deldocs tool deletes documents only from IBM Image Services databases, yet not from storage media such as OSAR or EMC Centera devices.

To delete documents from Centera, use SDS_tool's modify command.

SDS_tool> modify docid=nnnnnnnn delete

(Where nnnnnnnn is the docid to be deleted)
