A simple test

January 30, 2007 at 2:56 pm | Posted in Troubleshooting | Leave a comment

One of the first things I do after deploying content server on to a new system is the following quick and simple test:

1. Open up a command prompt or shell
2. Start iapi/iapi32 and run a script such as the following:

quick test
some test content
query,c,select * from dm_document search document contains 'test'

This test will quickly identify problems with the main components of documentum:

  1. Is is possible to even login?
  2. Can a document be created?
  3. Is both read and write access to the content store available?
  4. Is the full-text querying component properly instantiated?

I have seen several systems where everything appeared to be working well until a certain API (creating new content or running a full-text search) was invoked.
