Use Alfresco as Records Management system

Hi all,

I am trying to use alfresco as the records management system (RMS).

I am following the Alfresco records management user guide (which is the only Alfresco material I found out) to setup a simple RMS, and I found it a bit confusing.

I created a very simple file plan with the following rules:
- Records will be cut-off when marked obsolete
- Records will not be hold for retention
- Records will be destroyed (deleted) immediately after that

Then when I marked a record in this file-plan obsolete, this record was cut-off but it still existed in the file-plan.  And i also got the exception "org.springframework.beans.factory.NoSuchBeanDefinitionException: No bean named 'destroyDispositionAction' is defined".
Does it mean that the RMS module is not yet ready for use?

And I also found that the user guide is quite confusing. In the user guide, it mentions that the report includes six main areas, but I see that Alfresco only has four (records due for transfer and records due for destruction are missing). And I have no idea how to access many metadata listed in the user guide. A good example is the destructionDate metadata of the rma:destructable aspect.

Could anyone pls enlighten me? Thanks :D
