[Koha] New added items and biblio records not searchable on two-tier setup

Hi  All

I am running an instance of Koha on Debian 8.11 where both
the application server and the Koha database where running on one server.
My server was becoming overwhelmed so I decided to have a two-tier setup
with the database running on another separate server  by changing the
<hostname>localhost</hostname  in  /etc/koha/sites/library/koha-conf.xml to
the IP address of the database server and granting the relevant privileges.
Everything seems to be going on well.  However, newly added items and
biblio records are not searchable on the catalogue pointing to a browse
index-related issue. What should I do on a two-tier setup to ensure that
newly added items are added to the browse index and  are searchable? Any
pointers are most welcome.

Kind Regards,
