Daily Log for #alfresco

2019-12-17 09:59:12 GMT <alfresco-discord> <MorganP> I have no clue what is GFS2 but since you mentioned XFS, I assume that's a file system...

2019-12-17 10:00:20 GMT <alfresco-discord> <MorganP> So as @Douglas Paes (douglascrp) mentioned, it's not an Alfresco requirement at all. It might be a requirement from your client but not from Alfresco, it can run on pretty much anything

2019-12-17 11:21:59 GMT <alfresco-discord> <monica> Hello Everyone, I have an existing instance on alfresco 5.2 and i am trying to upgrade it to alfresco 6.2. So i want to know the process of migrating the postgres of alfresco 5.2 to alfresco 6.2 . Please guide.

2019-12-17 11:23:15 GMT <angelborroy> Migrating the version of Postgres?

2019-12-17 11:23:37 GMT <angelborroy> Or migrating the Alfresco database to the new Alfresco version?

2019-12-17 11:28:12 GMT <angelborroy> I guess this information is still valid:

2019-12-17 11:28:15 GMT <alfbot> Title:Upgrading to Alfresco 6 (at www.slideshare.net)

2019-12-17 12:03:05 GMT <alfresco-discord> <dgradecak> anyone used action=MERGEINDEXES with ASS?

2019-12-17 12:03:22 GMT <alfresco-discord> <dgradecak> anythoughs about that angel?

2019-12-17 12:03:45 GMT <angelborroy> SOLR performs this operation by itself

2019-12-17 12:03:50 GMT <angelborroy> Why do you want to force that?

2019-12-17 12:04:01 GMT <angelborroy> I guess you are using SOLR 6, right?

2019-12-17 12:04:14 GMT <alfresco-discord> <dgradecak> yep

2019-12-17 12:04:25 GMT <angelborroy> Do you have many segments?

2019-12-17 12:04:33 GMT <angelborroy> So do you want to force that merge?

2019-12-17 12:04:35 GMT <alfresco-discord> <dgradecak> well, what I am looking at is to copy the indexes to a new core

2019-12-17 12:05:21 GMT <angelborroy> Then I should use the “Optimize” option

2019-12-17 12:06:26 GMT <angelborroy> It’s very expensive, but that will give you smaller indexes

2019-12-17 12:07:04 GMT <alfresco-discord> <dgradecak> ok that makes sense to be done before copying the indexes right?

2019-12-17 12:07:47 GMT <angelborroy> Yep

2019-12-17 12:07:47 GMT <alfresco-discord> <dgradecak> I am exploring some options to make some kind of "snapshots" of the indexes

2019-12-17 12:07:56 GMT <angelborroy> What is the size of the indexes?

2019-12-17 12:09:11 GMT <alfresco-discord> <dgradecak> I did not check yet on production, but it is not enormous there is many small text files, but what I have been said it is less than 5Gb

2019-12-17 12:09:38 GMT <alfresco-discord> <dgradecak> with FTS

2019-12-17 12:12:52 GMT <alfresco-discord> <dgradecak> mainly, the user story is to be able to do searches on some kind of snapshots. Since they use alfresco I though would be good to explore to take a copy of the indexes at that specific moment (just a path for now)

2019-12-17 12:13:27 GMT <angelborroy> Then I think using Optimize is fine

2019-12-17 12:17:47 GMT <alfresco-discord> <dgradecak> and after optimize mergeindexes or there is a different way?

2019-12-17 12:18:08 GMT <angelborroy> Optimize will merge the indexes

2019-12-17 12:18:15 GMT <alfresco-discord> <dgradecak> ach so

2019-12-17 12:18:28 GMT <angelborroy> It will build the smaller index

2019-12-17 12:18:36 GMT <angelborroy> And hopefully 1 single segment

2019-12-17 14:37:01 GMT <fwu2018> hello!

2019-12-17 14:56:09 GMT <fwu2018> anyone using ADFS authentication in alfresco 5.2?

2019-12-17 14:56:13 GMT <fwu2018> community

2019-12-17 14:57:15 GMT <fwu2018> im not using share. But I believe alfresco must have an external identity provider configured

2019-12-17 14:57:34 GMT <fwu2018> so that alfresco can send back a token after authentication success using AD-fs

2019-12-17 15:06:38 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> it will need Alfresco Identity Service to work

2019-12-17 15:11:12 GMT <fwu2018> shouldnt be only needed to have an external provider making the calls to AD-fs that would and get "ok" or "not ok". And if ok ana lfresco token would be generated. Im not concern about SSO.

2019-12-17 15:13:32 GMT <fwu2018> is identity service compatible with alfresco 5.2 community?
