Changes in 2012 R2 collections -
- Never update the all systems collections, this will cause a snowball affect updating all collections that limit to that collection. This is specific to R2 release.
- Try to have as few collections as possible limit to the all systems collections.
- CEviewer (Collection Evaluator Viewer is a nice tool in the R2 Toolkit to the look at what collections may be doing at any given time and to look at what is scheduled for them in the future. The tool doesn't use the collection evaluator, it instead doing direct sql queries. (much faster and more accurate).
- For reference, tables collections_L and collections_G are the primary tables to get this information from.
- Using powershell is awesome to create collections, however be aware that they will not be placed into folders once created.
- The limit of 200 collections with incremental updates is no more. Use CEViewer to see what collections are updating and when.
- Scripts were shows to disable all incremental updates on all collections and then to enable incremental updates according to a custom schedule on all collections in a single folder. These scripts will be given to Brian and shared on the mnscug site.
- Coretech has a lot of neat tools. One to import and export collections using simple excel and powershell (with membership queries) will be released after teched.
