To reinventory a virtual root (virtual directory), you need to force Index Server to scan it. You should rescan after making certain global changes. For example:
To scan a directory
For details about scanning, see Scanning.
If you prefer, you can force scans through an .ida file.To scan a directory through an .ida file
CiAdminOperation=ScanRootsin the .ida file.
The special variables are
PROOT_virtual root and
SCAN_virtual root. If the root is a news root, these variables are
PROOT_NNTP_virtual root and
A variable with the name
PROOT_virtual root identifies the current mapping between virtual and physical root. The virtual root is the variable name after the string
PROOT_ and the corresponding physical path is the value of the variable. For example, a root directory pointing to E:\Wwwroot would be described by:
PROOT_/ = e:\wwwroot.
If the second special variable,
SCAN_virtual root exists and set to one of IncrementalScan or FullScan, then Index Server will do the specified scan of the virtual directory. If this variable does not exist or set to NoScan, then no scanning will be done.
The sample Scan.htx file lists all the virtual roots that are indexed and by default sets the
SCAN_virtual root to NoScan. See the Scanning page for more details on the sample ForceScan administration operation.
