REDIRECT_IFIL <filename>

As a result of redirection during automatic recovery, if the IFIL resource of the file contained a path, this path would be incorrect after the file was redirected to the new location. To support copying c-tree files from one directory location to another (on the same system or on a different system) and accessing them in their new location, it is necessary to update any filename paths in a c-tree data file's IFIL resource.

The FairCom DB configuration option REDIRECT_IFIL <filename> provides support for automatically modifying redirected files on the server. When this option is specified, on server start up (after automatic recovery completes) the file named <filename> is opened and its list of file names is read from it. <filename> is a text file containing one c-tree data file per line. For each file specified in <filename>, FairCom DB opens the file and uses the filename redirection rules (specified with one or more of the REDIRECT options) to change the data and index file paths in the IFIL resource of the file.

Refer to the FairCom DB ctredirect standalone utility to manually modify files that may have been moved.
