Disabling the File Vault
Once revision content is migrated to the Configuration Management file vault, that content is vaulted forever. Disabling file vaulting can prevent any new revisions from being vaulted. When you disable file vaulting, existing vaulted revisions remain in the vault, and new revisions are stored in the database again.
Once the file vault is operational, access to the file vault must be maintained in perpetuity to access vaulted revisions. Also, there is no way to move vaulted revisions back in to the database.
To disable the file vault:
1. Stop the Windchill RV&S server.
2. Disable vault support by modifying the following property in the file under WindchillRV&SServerinstalldir/config/properties:
When set to false, file vaulting is disabled on the Windchill RV&S server.
3. Start the Windchill RV&S server.
