Error retrieving manual attachments from SOFFDB


I created a new HTTP content server that uses Archive link. So all the scanned documents are getting saved in content server which is fine.

But when I switch SOFFDB repository from SAP Database to point to HTTP Content repository, the new documents that are manually attached after the switch are able to be viewed properly.

The old documents that were previously on SAP database, when tried to open now throws an error "Database error for <GET DATA FROM KPRO> <>"

This error is definitely because of the switch to new content server. My question is

1) Do I need to migrate all the documents from SAP Database to HTTP Content server before switching SOFFDB to content server?

2) Where do I find the path of the documents. I just see them in SOOD table and from the configuration in OAC0, I could see that the physical path is mentioned as /usr/sap/<SID>/SYS/global/, but could not find the documents at that location. What is the physical location of the documents that go through SOFFDB (and on SAP database).
