Is It Possible to Modify the Properties of Mirrors/Slices After their Creation?

The name, location and index folder path of mirrors and slices is fixed, meaning that, if these properties need to be modified, a new mirror or slice must be configured (see Adding a Mirror Server, Adding Index Slices). However, it is possible to modify the path of the optimization folder, that is, the folder in which the index content is stored during optimization (see What Is the Optimization Process?).

To modify the path of the optimization folder on a mirror server

  1. On the Coveo server, access the Administration Tool (see Opening the Administration Tool).

  2. Access the Mirrors page (Index > Mirrors).

  3. Click the appropriate mirror.

    The General page appears.

  4. In the Optimize Folder field, enter the path of the optimization folder.

  5. Click Apply Changes.

  4. In the navigation panel on the left, click Slices.

    The Slices page appears.

    The corresponding page appears.
