Lotus Connections - Problems with Document Indexing Service on Lotus Connections 3.0 on Linux

One of my mates, Jon, was seeing the following set of exceptions with Lotus Connections 3.0: -

[12/20/10 18:21:00:649 GMT] 00000051 DocumentIndex E com.ibm.lotus.connections.search.service.files.impl.DocumentIndexingServiceImpl isEnvironmentValid CLFRW0493E: Unable to start the document indexing service, please ensure that the PATH environment variable has been set.

At my suggestion, Jon set the LD_LIBRARY_PATH and PATH variables: -


export PATH=/opt/IBM/LotusConnections/data/search/stellent/dcs/oiexport:$PATH
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$LD_LIBRARY_PATH:/opt/IBM/LotusConnections/data/search/stellent/dcs/oiexport



This came from some previous experience with Lotus Quickr and also the Lotus Connections 2.5 Information Centre here.

Hope this is of use to someone else out there :-)

@Julius - excellent, thanks for letting me know

Just used this thanks Dave. Had the same error and setting the path as directed sorted it. Only change was that as I am on a clustered environment the path for the stellent/dcs etc was in the shared data location.

Awesome, it worked!

In Cluster env. here is the command:


export PATH=/opt/IBM/LotusConnections/data/shared/search/stellent/dcs/oiexport:$PATH
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$LD_LIBRARY_PATH:/opt/IBM/LotusConnections/data/shared/search/stellent/dcs/oiexport
