space not found after XML import

We have exported a small space (5 pages) from one server and imported it to another (Confluence Server V6.1.2).

This starts a rebuild of the index and the new space cannot be found for hours. However we can address it directly with /display/<spacekey>/. The space's page were not visible either.

Another issue: The index rebuild was blocked at 96 or 97% and did not finish. After restarting confluence it went rather fast up to this same percentage and stood there again. After the weekend everything seems fine.

Is there a way to optimize the index rebuild? Would it help to do it more often?

When the index hangs during rebuild it can help to rebuild from scratch as described in How to rebuild the content indexes from scratch on Confluence server. You will need a maintenance window as the procedure requires a restart.
