Subject RE: Using Archiva as a Mirror
Date Mon, 04 Sep 2006 15:16:27 GMT
Hi Brett,

I actually first renamed the folder on the hard drive and then
re-configured the settings in the Administration dialog.  Only after
those changes the indexer would work.  And I do not think I had a typo
in my configuration since I am pretty sure I copied the folder name into
the administration dialog.  I also could see the changes with a manual
kick-off of the indexer (Run Now).  Before the changes it was running
over night for about 12 hours without being able to index.

No, it's just that it detected that it didn't exist and ran the  
indexer instead of waiting an hour (I'm assuming you now have both  
directories existing).
