Allows you to delete all data from your IDOL Server data index, and to reset the data index.
DREINITIAL also clears the contents of the index queue, including any queued index actions. You can preserve the index queue by using the PreserveQueue parameter, or by setting the PreserveOnInitial configuration parameter.
You can also use
DREINITIAL to restore a backup file (created by using the DREBACKUP index action) to an IDOL Server, using the following index action:
||is the IP address or host name of the machine on which IDOL is installed.|
||is the IDOL Content Component index port (specified by the
||is the path to the location of the IDOL Server backup, created by DREBACKUP.|
If you use
DREINITIAL to restore from a backup, the index action is added to the backup event list. You can control the length of this list by using the BackupListLength configuration parameter in the IDOL Server configuration file.
DREINITIAL index action initializes or restores only the index data files, and does not affect your configuration file. When you initialize the index, or restore from a backup, it does not overwrite any configuration file changes you have made.
When you restore from a backup using
DREINITIAL, IDOL Server does not reindex the data.
When you want to update a configuration parameter that requires you to reindex your data, you can use DREEXPORTIDX or DREEXPORTXML to export an IDX or XML file. You can then initialize your index, make your configuration changes and index the IDX or XML file back into IDOL Server.
DREINITIAL index action resets the index, the index action always returns its index ID as 1. To allow you to track the process, HPE recommends that you set the InitialID parameter in the
DREINITIAL index action. The IDOL Server GetStatus action reports the InitialID of the last
DREINITIAL that it processed, which allows you to check whether the
DREINITIAL index action has been completed. The InitialID also ensures that if the server receives the same request multiple times, it processes only the first one.
