[Koha] New added items and biblio records not searchable

Hi  All

I had an instance of Koha on Debian 8.11 where both the application server
and databases 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  and changing the <hostname>localhost</hostname
in  /etc/koha/sites/library/koha-conf.xml to the ipaddress of the database
server and granting the relevant privileges. Everything seems to be going
on well.  However, newly added item 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 books are searchable? Any
pointers are most welcome.

Kind Regards,
