Backing up the Search index
You can back up the Search index using SearchService commands or you can manually copy the index files to a backup location.
Note that the Search index has a dependency on the HOMEPAGE database. The Search index can be backed up and restored independently of the HOMEPAGE database as long as the HOMEPAGE database remains current. However, if the database is restored, a corresponding Search index backup must be restored with it.
- Backing up the Search index using wsadmin commands
Use SearchService administrative commands to define scheduled backup tasks for the Search index.
- Backing up the Search index manually
The Search index can be backed up and restored at a later date in the event of loss or corruption of data.
