Activating and Deactivating Information Structures

Prerequisites

You are in the initial screen of the Archive Retrieval Configurator (ARC).

Activate

To activate an information structure, choose Archive Information Structure ® Activate. The information structure is activated. This structure will be filled automatically during the next delete phase for this archiving object.

You can also fill an activated information structure retrospectively for already existing archives, see Fill Information Structures.

Additional consequences of activating are:

  • The archive info structure can be reported in the Archive Explorer.
  • You can display status information on this information structure.
  • You cannot make any changes to the information structure.

Deactivate

To deactivate an information structure, choose Archive Information Structure ® Deactivate.

You have deactivated the information structure. This ensures that, this information structure will be ignored during the next delete phase for the archiving object or if the archive information structure is filled retrospectively.

You can make changes to an inactive information structure. However, if you make changes, be aware that you might also have to regenerate the table. When doing this, you must delete the data in it. Finally, you must refill the information structure.
