Subject [Windows Shares Connector] Un-expected removal of all documents
Date Tue, 31 Mar 2015 13:30:17 GMT
Hi guys,
playing with the Windows Shares Connector in ManifoldCF 1.8 I encountered
this problem :

*1)* Indexing windows Shares server
*2)* Indexing successfully finished with N docs indexed
*3)* Offline ,while no indexing is happening, Shares server side, the
Administrator password changes
*4) *Repository Connector is not able to connect anymore(of course because
the password has changed)
*5)* Next indexing cycle, ALL docs are removed from the index .

*Expected Behaviour*
As I user I would like to see an error message, that will let me understand
the issue, not losing all my N indexed docs .

Taking a look into the code, the problems seems to be in the :
where it tries to access each document singularly through Samba, and
removing them one by one if not reachable anymore.

Before scanning each document, we have to be sure the connection is working.
If not this is only armful.

I will continue investigating, but I would like your opinion as well
