How to move files between iManage Worksite Files Servers

worksiteCreate a new File Server Location

In the worksite database management , go to File Serveron the Database and assign it a share with the imanage username full permissions

**Restart the Worksite Server Services to accept the new share


Change the a user who is an author of a document you want to move ( check on the existing fileserver or use monitor to check where the file is located ) to use the new file server for that database

Open that file and close it , this will initiate a move to the new fileserver


You can use the tool imRedDoc.exe ( Worksite Document Redistribution Tool) for this task. You can download this via the Worksite Support Site. You will need to download the correct version depending on your Imanage Worksite.

8.5 version can be downloaded through the WorkSite Resource Kit 8.5

Once downloaded, open the file usually found in C:\Program Files (x86)\Autonomy\WorkSite\Server\

Connect to the server with Admin credentials using WSADMIN permissions

Choose the database from which you would like to relocate the files

If you leave the Search Blank , it will do a Database level Search , to itemize this , do the below

Now in Worksite or Desksite create a Saved Search , but right clicking on a workspace in the correct Database and choosing New and Search Folder

Create a filter for this search e.g. this will usually be the creator of the document over a period of time. Create a name for the search and remember it

Go back to Worksite Document Redistribution Tool and enter this name into the Saved Search , click Validate to make sure the Search can be found

If you have specific documents flagged with a boolean value in one of the four document record boolean fields and want only these documents examined and updated, select the boolean field name from the Filter drop-down menu. CBOOL1 is selected by default. ( You can set this to blank if not )

Make sure you login to the Database Administration Tool and set the User’s fileserver to the new one

Click start, and you can see the files examined and files moved , and choose log to see this live
