Table 13 Known Issues in Search

Issue ID 




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

Workaround: To change the default order, add `+' as a first character of the sort string. Because `+' 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 document root of an already indexed collection is changed, the document returned by the search throws a Document Not Found error.

Workaround: Rebuild the entire collection by performing one of the following actions:

  • Remove all documents and add them back again.

  • Delete the collection and create it again.


Search does not work when you search for a word using a different case pattern. 

Search results are not displayed on the the search page if you search using a word of mixed case. For example, typing sAmpLe instead of sample or SAMPLE. 


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

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

PHSS_28871 — ld/linker cumulative patch


Search engine fails to index password protected PDF document 

If a PDF document is password protected and encrypted, the search engine fails to index the document's metadata. As a result, the requested search fails. 


Web Server 6.1 SP10 64-bit solaris sparc, few search tests fails when JDK 1.6.0_07 used. 

While running search tests, a few test cases fail with stack overflow error when JDK 1.6.0_07 is used. Whereas, the same test passes with bundled JDK 1.5.0_16.  

Workaround: Increase the StackSize value from 131072 to a value, for example, 262144 in the magnus.conf file.
