U4-5995 - Update examine implementation to store indexes in machine specific folders

We can now do this in your ExamineIndex.config which is useful for load balancing to ensure your indexes are stored in machine name specific folders if you are using a centralized SAN/File server hosting setup

IndexPath="~/App_Data/TEMP/ExamineIndexes///Internal/" />

the token will be replaced with the current server's name.

the will be replaced with the current website id (IIS id). This is not required unless load balancing on the same machine.

Does this need to be added for all IndexSets? For example on Internal Member:

IndexPath="~/App_Data/TEMP/ExamineIndexes///InternalMember/"

no, this is optional for use with load balancing. See description above.

This is not required unless load balancing on the same machine.

The way your original post is worded gives the impression that "This is not required unless load balancing on the same machine." is referring to the .

Based on your second post, I assume that you meant to say that the entire IndexPath rewrite is only required if load balancing on the same machine. That being said, if not load balancing on a single machine, then one should be able to disregard this issue entirely and leave the IndexPath as the default set by Umbraco. Is this correct?

None of this is required unless you are load balancing, and that really depends on your load balancing setup - generally speaking this would be required:

to ensure your indexes are stored in machine name specific folders if you are using a centralized SAN/File server hosting setup

- would only be required if load balancing on the same machine (which you would ONLY do if you are testing)
