AEM 6.3: created groups and users are not found in search after server restart

Hello,

when I create a new group or user in /system/useradmin everything is fine as long as the server keeps running.

When I only log out and back in again, still everything works fine.

But as soon as I stop the instance and start it up again, the users and groups are still there but are not found in the search anymore.

I always have to click through the pages until I find them, which is really annoying.

I tried reindexing the authorisables, because I found that hint in the forum but it didn't solve the issue.

Does anybody have encountered this issue before and knows a solution?

Thanks in advance for your help!

Did you try to click on Hide users or Hide group and do the search?

Does the touch UI also show the same behavior? Do you see any kind of traversal warning message in error logs?

I clicked hide users and Hide groups several times.

Same behaviour on touch UI.

There are traversal errors but not regarding users or groups but rather certain pages.

For example

Edit:

Now I probably found the problem in the error.log

But I have absolutely no clue how to fix that.

Unfortunately oak-run gives me an error:

08:07:22 - Error occurred while performing index tasks

org.apache.jackrabbit.oak.segment.file.InvalidFileStoreVersionException: Using a too recent version of oak-segment-tar

        at org.apache.jackrabbit.oak.segment.file.ManifestChecker.checkStoreVersion(ManifestChecker.java:81) ~[oak-run-1.8.2.jar:1.8.2]

I tried using oak-run-1.6.6 instead but this version doesn't know the options "reindex" and "index-paths".

Couldn't find any documentation.

You should be using the same version of oak run as per the Oak version of your instance. You can find the version in the home page of crxde

Thanks for the help guys!

I determined my Oak version is 1.6.9 and downloaded oak-run-1.6.9.jar

I found the following command to start reindexing online:

java -jar oak-run-1.6.9.jar index --reindex --index-paths=/oak:index/lucene --read-write --fd

s-path=/crx-quickstart/repository/datastore /crx-quickstart/repository/segmentstore

It starts up and the gives me the following error stating it doesn't recognize the option "reindex":

Apache Jackrabbit Oak 1.6.9

Opening nodestore...

Exception in thread "main" joptsimple.UnrecognizedOptionException: 'reindex' is not a recognized option

        at joptsimple.OptionException.unrecognizedOption(OptionException.java:89)

...

Am I doing something wrong? Should I use a different command?

I don't find much sources online, can somebody help?

Thank you so much in advance!

Hi,

the documentation mentions that the commands are from 1.7.0  Jackrabbit Oak – Oak Run Indexing

To confirm whether its just reindex please try

You can try reindexing by changing the property value 'reindex' from false to true at the path /oak:index/authorizables

Screenshot 2019-07-08 at 23.16.05.png

Once saved, you can see reindexing for the selected index is triggered in the logs.

Tip : you can check at the below URL to check the status of oak indexes

Hi everybody,

I appreciate your answers and I learned quite a bit from it! Thank you!

I finally was able to resolve issue but in a totally other way than I thought:

Per coincident I found out that the corrupted authorizables-index that was unrepairable with all the measures mentioned above was caused by a corrupted content package. I have absolutely no idea what was wrong with it, but when I uninstalled that package, everything worked fine.

So I installed a freshly built content package from a working server instance and that solved the issue.

Thanks again for your support. Issue solved!
