How to change the Indexing location for Backup Exec System Recovery Manager Indexing Service or manually purge the previous index logs.

Solution



Configure the indexing component to place its files on a different drive :
1. Stop the services called "Backup Exec Retrieve" and "Backup Exec Search and Index"

2. Move following folders to the desired location :

C:\Program Files\Common files\Symantec Shared\Indexing\SUIR\dynterm
C:\Program Files\Common files\Symantec Shared\Indexing\SUIR\nodetable
C:\Program Files\Common files\Symantec Shared\Indexing\SUIR\refindex
C:\Program Files\Common files\Symantec Shared\Indexing\SUIR\main
C:\Program Files\Common files\Symantec Shared\Indexing\SUIR\logs
C:\Program Files\Common files\Symantec Shared\Indexing\SUIR\numeric
C:\Program Files\Common files\Symantec Shared\Indexing\SUIR\sortfield
C:\Program Files\Common files\Symantec Shared\Indexing\SUIR\storedstate
C:\Program Files\Common files\Symantec Shared\Indexing\SUIR\status
C:\Program Files\Common files\Symantec Shared\Indexing\SUIR\tagindex


3. Open the SUIR.CFG file present in the indexing installation directory using Notepad (default location is in C:\Program Files\Common Files\Symantec Shared\Indexing\SUIR\suir.cfg)


4. Edit the section titled: "Paths" so that all entries under that section are pointing to the Desired path. In the example shown below, the Indexing path is set to E:\Indexing
