Important points about CLC Server file system locations
- Folders added as file system locations should be dedicated for use by the CLC Server and should be directly accessed only by the CLC Server.
- The underlying file system must support file locking.
- All the data written to file system locations by the CLC Server will be in clc format and will be owned by the user that runs the CLC Server process.
- Files should not be moved manually into folders designated as CLC Server file system locations, or their subfolders, for example using standard operating system's command tools, drag
and drop, and so on.
- Areas designated as file system locations should not overlap. That is, if a folder has been designated as a file system location, it should not be
a subfolder of another area also designated as a file system location, or vice versa. Overlapping file system locations lead to problems with data indexing
, which in turn leads to problems finding the stored data. Further information about indexing can be found in Rebuilding the index.
