More on File Store Provider
By Kevin Smith on May 20, 2011
In PS4 (184.108.40.206.0) 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 (220.127.116.11.0). 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:
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.
