Mirroring Verity Collections

Is there any technique to setup collections on two CF Enterprise Servers so that any changes made to a folder containing a 10000 or so word docs are replicated among the two collections?

For Example
A collection is setup on each CF server which indexes the exact same folder containing word docs (Not sure what way to store the folder ? on a third party server ? or make a duplicate on each server ?)

Hardware load balancing is used between both CF Servers

If a new word document is uploaded on one of the CF servers the collection is updated for that server but how do you tell the second server's collection to update its collection to store the new change ?

Basically I am trying to find a way of clustering verity collections among CF servers

Do you have file synchronization software running?

1. If you are and your file replication software supports synchronizing open files, you should be able to setup the catalog on each CF server to have the same name and just replicate the file from serverA to serverB and/or visa versa (depending on if you are running a master-to-slave replication or a 2-way scenario).

2.I would assume that the files being indexed are stored on a central storage array, or on each server and being replicated to the other. If this is the case, you can always just run indexing from both servers at the same time. I would assume you have scheduled your verity indexing, so you can synchronize your scheduling to be pretty close to the same. This is the way I have done it in the past.

Let me know if there is a reason why one of these won't work :)

I forgot to point out, if you have a central storage, I believe you can setup your collections there and have both CF servers looking at the same collection. I believe in this case you would only want ONE CF server doing the indexing, and this would probably work best if the files were stored centrally too.
