Issue

This troubleshooting procedure only applies to Nerada content repository.

Some documents are out-of-date or missing from Nerada content repository.

Impact(s) on users

When querying the content repository, users get a 404-error message or out-of-date documents.

Possible root cause(s)

This issue might occur when:

  • The PaF crashed after the afs_search_deploy but before the afs_crep_deploy finishes successfully.
  • The Nerada database was restored with an old backup.

Solution(s)

To synchronize the search database with Nerada, run the following command:

afs_service_deploy

The current implementation of afs_service_deploy does not allow to recover before the most recent FULL.

To prevent this issue to happen again, make sure that the filter order recommendation is fulfilled.
