I can see why you would change it on Windows ( I changed all of my Windows
servers) since it defaults to the environmental setting specified by the
TEMP or TMP variables which can run out of space easily on Windows if the
C: Drive is default and has limited storage of say 4GB.

On iSeries the default is the data directory, the only reason to change it
is if you were getting the error. "NSF directory manager pool is full"
since the indexer would fall back to the older method of rebuilding views.
I have never had that issue on iSeries.


On iSeries the IFS and the way drives are configured in the array is
usually optimized whether you are using native attached storage or a SAN
so I really do not see any reason to change it.

But if you did want to simply create a sub directory for each server.

VIEW_REBUILD_DIR=/notesdata/viewbuild/server1
VIEW_REBUILD_DIR=/notesdata/viewbuild/server2
VIEW_REBUILD_DIR=/notesdata/viewbuild/server2

You could also make the field in the configuation document computed and
use something like @servername to set the field to different sub
directories.

The folder rights should also be changed to the QNOTES profile as owner so
the indexer and server jobs have access to maniplate objects.

Sean

subject: Re: Domino400 Digest, - Question re View Rebuilds

Hello,

Does anyone know whether multiple DPARs can share the same
View_Rebuild_Dir on an iSeries? We have an issue on one of our DPARs
relating to a non-absolute path i.e. it hasn't been specified so Domino is

using a default directory - whatever that is.

"Insufficient memory - NSF directory manager pool is full' that can occur
when the notes.ini parameter VIEW_REBUILD_DIR is set to a non-absolute
path and a third party server addin (i.e., backup process) changes the
current working directory."

We haven't set this up for our iSeries although we use it for our single
DPAR Windows machines.

It would be useful if DPARs can share the same view rebuild location so
that the parameter can be added to a configuration document rather than
having to add it to 20 different Notes.ini files. It is much more visible

to in a config document - another big benefit.

I can't find anything about this in the KnowledgeBase or on Internet.

I suspect the answer is "No" but thought it worth asking :-)

The other issue of course is why Domino should have a problem due to not
defining a Veiw_Rebuild_Dir that ??? There is certainly nothing in the
"Domino on iSeries Best Practices Guide" about it so it wouldn't appear to

be necessary to have to define one.

Many thanks

Brian

No,
TMP files are created by random name based on the server, if two
servers were accessing the same rebuild dir the possibility exists that
both servers would attempt to use the same
temporary file name. Worst case, a server crash or hang on the file
operation.
