IR Expert scirexpert file

Service Manager stores all IR index data in a single database table named scirexpert to ensure database independence. Service Manager creates the scirexpert file in the RDBMS.

When you run IR Regen, Service Manager checks the scirexpert file for an index. If the index is missing, it uses a flat file. After regenerating all IR indexes, all IR data resides in the scirexpert file. No flat files (ir.*) exist. When you back up the database, you will back up the IR index (scirexpert) file.

Other IR procedures, such as regenerating IR indices and creating IR searches, remain the same.
