Those of you who have strange issues with searching archives, I want to
share what I learned. I am not recommending that you do this, just sharing.

Sometimes you may have index or archive corruption. We experienced this
when restoring a backup and were barely able to query.

On the console, one can select F10>Actions. Novell had ME do a "verify and
repair Archive", then do a "delete and Regenerate Indexes."

Voila! She works!

I am confident that almost anyone can get away with this and not hurt
anything. However, even the tech I worked with did not really know for

Good luck.
