Document Content Search - Inconsistent results from Workgroup servers (7.12)
We recently discovered that DCI searches from one workgroup server were returning significantly fewer results than those queried via a different Workgroup server. The difference was significant (see screenshot). The WG servers are virtual and in the same domain, and query the same index.
We remedied the problem with a service re-start on the server producing the reduced results, WG1 (which also is not running the event service).
It's puzzling and disturbing that this can occur. Does anyone know how/why this can happen and further how to prevent it in the future?
Re: Document Content Search - Inconsistent results from Workgroup servers
Considering a WGS restart fixed it, I'm guessing a metadata caching issue on WG1. Perhaps look for entries in the Windows application event logs and TRIM WGS logs on the workgroup servers relating to an inability to communicate with other workgroup servers. Perhaps a firewall? For the information of the group it'd be handy to know which version of TRIM 7. Could make a big difference whether we're talking about ISYS or IDOL DCI.
