There are many aspects to data management in Solid Edge, such as Indexing options, indexing attributes, NTFS permissions, shared folder permissions, indexing status, Fast Search scope definition, and more. If any of these go wrong, Solid Edge Fast Search functionality ceases to work. We understand that keeping track of all these aspects is not an easy task; hence, we have developed a tool called Solid Edge data management Diagnostic application that will check the configuration error and help to correct it.
This Diagnostic application (BuiltinDiagApp.exe) is available in <Solid Edge\Fast Search install directory>/Program folder. Run this application on client and server machines with administrative privileges. If there is any configuration issue(s), the application will highlight the error(s) and provide a quick way to repair these.
This utility ensures that the following required settings outlined below are met:
Finally, when all your validations are successful you are good to go…!
If you are storing data on a remote Fast Search server AND if you are running the diagnostic application on any Solid Edge client machine, then skip/deselect the below two validations:
Because this tool can’t validate or correct Fast server configuration from Solid Edge client. To validate this run the utility on Fast Search server machine.
In conclusion, the Solid Edge data management Diagnostic Application helps you to configure Solid Edge data management properly without anyone’s assistance. There are many aspects to Solid Edge data management, and it can be difficult to identify the cause of errors when the Fast Search capability ceases to work. This tool—which is now delivered with Solid Edge and Fast Search setup starting in Solid Edge ST10 Maintenance Pack 4—makes it easier to check for and correct these configuration errors that may occur, so you can get Fast Search working again quickly and with ease!
