More on File Store Provider

In PS4 (11.1.1.5.0) you can now fully edit the FSP storage rule using the web interface instead of having to edit the hda files. I think this was actually added in a patch for PS3 (11.1.1.4.0). This makes it easier to manage FSP storage rules.

When I was researching the FSP behavior I found this in the Admin User's Guide.

4.3.2 FileStoreProvider Upgrade

The FileStoreProvider component is installed, enabled, and upgraded by default for a new Oracle Content Server instance (with no documents in it). The upgrade includes creation of metadata fields with default values for the file store system (DefaultFileStore). Earlier versions of the Oracle Content Server software did not automatically upgrade the file store system, and sites could choose to not use the file store system, to not upgrade to use FileStoreProvider, and to uninstall the FileStoreProvider component and metadata fields. If you do not want to upgrade FileStoreProvider from your current settings, prior to installation you must enter the configuration variable FsAutoConfigure=false in the Additional Configuration Variables field on the General Configuration page of the Oracle Content Server Admin Server page.

I'm not exactly sure how you get to the Admin Server before you actually do the install. That would be quite a trick if you could do it. What I think they mean is that you need to add it to the config.cfg file that exists before you start the install, or actually before you create the WebLogic domain or add UCM to an existing domain. I have not tried this myself, but I would suspect that you would add it to the following file:

Oracle_ECM1/ucm/idc/config/config.cfg

The other place you might want to try adding it is to the config.cfg that is created in the ucm/cs/config directory AFTER you add UCM to a WebLogic domain, but BEFORE you start it for the first time. I suspect that the FSP upgrade is done as part of the initial start up of UCM.

You would do this if you were installing a new 11g UCM instance and wanted it to work that same way as a 10g instance that was not using  the FSP.

Hi Kevin,
If possible i require a help regarding the file storage in UCM. It will be a great help if you can help me with this.

My requirement is like this

The client i am working for now has a requirement to move the file system storage to another location once the configured location is reached it's storage limits.

The questions are as follows

1) Can UCM support moving file storage to different location? if yes what could be the impact/configurations we need to change?
2) Can file store provider support such mechanism?
3) Can we define storage rules like this?
4) Is there any other thing to be take care while doing it?
5) Any documentation related to moving the file system

thanks a lot in advance

Regards,
Poornima

The right way to do this is to create a new file store provider rule and start using that when the file system associated with the first file store provider rule fills up. Create a profile rule that sets the file store provider rule for new content and update it to use the new file store provider rule.
