[Archivesspace_Users_Group] Containers not being associated with their resources

Hi Mark

We ran into a similar issue recently, where newly created containers were
not being properly associated with the resource record, and updates to
locations or barcodes were not showing up in searches or the Manage Top
Containers view. We looked at the timestamp files for the indexer, and
noticed that there was no location.dat file. We performed a soft re-index
after which our containers, barcodes, and locations resumed behaving as
expected. We also have recurring monthly system restarts (which will now
include a soft re-index going forward) built into our schedule, which seems
to help with maintaining overall performance.

I'm not sure if this is exactly what you're experiencing, but I hope it's
helpful. Take care,
