More Information

After you apply the hotfix package, you must add an attribute to the repository element in the documentum connector configuration file (DCTMConfig.xml) for every server that has the crawl functionality. To enable the hotfix package, follow these steps:
  • Locate the following path for the documentum connector configuration file:

    %CommonProgramFiles%\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\14\CONFIG\SearchConnectors\Documentum\DCTMConfig.xml
  • In the section of your repository, add the IndexAllVersions="True" attribute:
    <Repository Name="RepositoryName" IndexAllVersions="True">      <DFSWebServiceURIs>        <DFSWebServiceURI>"http://dfswebservice/services"</DFSWebServiceURI>      </DFSWebServiceURIs></Repository>
    Note Before you add the IndexAllVersions="True" attribute, your repository section should be as following:
    <Repository Name="RepositoryName">      <DFSWebServiceURIs>        <DFSWebServiceURI>"http://dfswebservice/services"</DFSWebServiceURI>      </DFSWebServiceURIs></Repository>
  • Restart the Search Service Application on every server that has the crawl functionality.
  • Perform a full crawl.
  • The number of document in the index can increase greatly after you apply these steps. This may require a larger search deployment to index all content.
  • Relevance can be affected because each version of a document is viewed as a separate document in the search system. There is no guarantee that the current version will be returned in the search result. 
  • We recommend that you enable this hotfix only if you have a specific requirement to index all versions of a document.
