I want to clone/copy whole objectstore in same environment of FileNet in same Domain.This is to meet requirement of separating (split) business department that uses an objectstore currently. After copying the objectstore with different name, we will change users permissions in respective objectstores in order to have segregated access for both departments.There are more than 3 million documents in objectstore. Kindly guide me how to achieve same with minimum effort.
Try the following in a test environment first:
Thank you RUTH Hildebrand-Lund.
Will try the steps in test environment and let you know.
just to add one idea to the steps proposed by Ruth: You may need to consider where the document content is stored currently. In case your existing (to be cloned) object store only uses a database storage area (meaning the document content is stored in the object store database), you are completely fine.
If the object store uses e.g. a file storage area, you may have to create a copy the contents of this file store area as well and change the config for the new (copied) object store to point to the copied filestore.
Also, you may not be able to delete all undesired documents from the object stores in case documents are under retention or holds are applied.
Michael's comments are very valid. So, the right first step would be to use the sweep in ACCE to move the content for the new object store to a new location.
Thank you Michael and RUTH.
Yes, I have considered this as well. We have file storage areas that need to copy and configure in new objectstore.
There are no case documents in this particular objectstore.
I realize there might be an issue with deleting the content as part of the clean up, as the CPE will try to delete the content from the storage area too....if it can access the storage area, it will delete that the "other" object store needs to keep. As Michael pointed out, if the content is stored in the object store database, this wont be an issue...but for any other type of storage, it will be a problem
So, temporarily, you might want to do the following after you have separated the content and created the new object store
Hi RUTH and Michael,
Suggested approach worked. I did it in non-prod areas successfully. Thank you for your expert guidance.
