Problem ID 




AIX-Search Engine of 6.1 should have the ability to change the sort order. 

Workaround: For changing default order add `+' as a first character of the sort string. Since `+' in uri is escaped use `%2B' to change the order. In this case change the URL to: http://host/search/index.jsp?si=1&ns;=10&c;=test&qt;=*&sb;=%2Bwriter.


If the docroot of an already indexed collection is changed, the document returned by the search throws a ‘Document Not Found’ error. 

Workaround: Rebuild the entire collection.

To do so: 

  • Remove all documents and add them back again.


  • Delete the collection and create it again.


Search doesn’t work when you search for a word using a different case pattern. 

Search results will not be displayed on the search page if you search using a word of mixed case (for example, typing jaVa instead of java or JAVA). 


On HP-UX: PDF files are not converted to HTML for inclusion in search collections. 

This occurs if the following patch is installed on the HP-UX 11i system:
