TREX indexes TXT and Folders only

Hi gurus,

Our TREX is version 7.0.25. We installed it mainly to search documents on KM's repository(CM repository with FSDB mode). In System administration -> Monitoring -> KM -> Indexing Monitor, the status of my index is red and reports N errors. I found all the N errors are DOC, PPT, PDF and etc formats. The successfully indexed ones are all TXT files and folders and they could be correctly searched by TREX.

Do I have to specify the file formats for TREX to index? If yes, where?

Hi Aaron,

Pratyush is on the right side. You´ll need the correct hostname of you portal in the URL Generator service. This is essential because TREX is requesting the documents to be indexed from the portal via http. And if the hostname is not maintained the URL´s are set wrong. The reason why the small text files are indexed is because documents that are smaller than the Max Transfer Size are transferred to the TREX directly. Here is the link to documentation
