Correction to the ClearQuest Information Center help topic "Upgrading Solr to the latest version supported by ClearQuest"

Technote (troubleshooting)


Problem(Abstract)

If you run the steps documented in the IBM Rational ClearQuest 8.0.0.5 Information Center help topic "Upgrading Solr to the latest version supported by ClearQuest" to upgrade Solr from V1.2.0 to V3.6.1, you might encounter a situation where re-indexing does not complete. The reason is because the fresh_batch_idx command-line option is not supported in this scenario.

    3. If a message displays after the command in Step 2 completes that instructs you to re-index the user database, then rerun the cqtsadmin.pl command four times, with the stop_update_idx, run_batch_idx, optimize_idx, and start_update_idx command-line options, respectively:


    cqperl cqtsadmin.pl --username admin --password secret --dbset TextSearch --userdb SAMPL --ftshome D:\CQ.Search --stop_update_idx

    cqperl cqtsadmin.pl --username admin --password secret --dbset TextSearch --userdb SAMPL --ftshome D:\CQ.Search --run_batch_idx

    cqperl cqtsadmin.pl --username admin --password secret --dbset TextSearch --userdb SAMPL --ftshome D:\CQ.Search --optimize_idx

    cqperl cqtsadmin.pl --username admin --password secret --dbset TextSearch --userdb SAMPL --ftshome D:\CQ.Search --start_update_idx
