Reposcan reporting every file in the FRS


BusinessObjects Enterprise XI 3.1 SP3

Windows 2008 R2 64-bit (2 servers, clustered BOXI install)

Shared FRS

I run the reposcan like this (on either server, both give the same results):

reposcan -dbdriver oracledatabasesubsystem -connect "UID=xxxxx;PWD=xxxxx;DSN=xxxxx" -inputfrsdir f:\Input -outputfrsdir f:\Output -count 20000

This is with the f: drive mapped to the shared FRS on the network. It works, I suppose, I mean it doesn't crash, but the result reports every single file in the FRS (all 6,312 of them!) is missing in the repository.

"Scanning 988 repository objects and 6312 files........................."

"Found 3 application reparable items and 6312 manually reparable items."

An example of one of the 6312 items in the report:

"File f:\Input\a_000\006\000\1536\~ce1388671c4cfc4f12.rpt exists in the Input or Output FRS, but there is no corresponding InfoObject in the repository."

This is pretty useless, and doesn't seem accurate, since for the most part, BOXI/Infoview is working fine. There's no way every single file has lost the connection to the repository... or is it? Can BOE continue to function without the FRS being synced with the repository on the database? Is reposcan reporting accurately? What's going on here? Am I not running reposcan correctly?
