Well, I finally got through the bad PDFs I mentioned acouple of weeks ago.
Now index of about 150GB of Linux based mounted NFS Netware volume took 2.5
hours to scan the documents, which was pretty good. It then went to merge
the temporary indexes, and took another 2 hours before completion. However
the completion failed for some reason I can't deduce from the cryptic
messages given (8004001E), and I am left with just a failed.log and a
failedindex. Here are the message summaries, can anybody interpret the
problem, or suggest a solution?

regards
Paul K
