    Keyword Find gives incomplete results

    A Keyword Find search for "Harry Potter" on our Test server gives only 1 result.

    A *Browse* for title "Harry Potter" shows almost 100.

    Looking at the Oct 18, 2010, $alephe_scratch/abc01_p_manage_01.00281 keyword indexing log, I see this:

    setenv p_delete_flag "1"
    setenv p_start_doc_number_x "002524386"
    setenv p_end_doc_number_x "002524387"

    The submission screen *used* to allow the submitter to select either Update or Delete, but there were problems with the Update (primarily, the generation of duplicate index entries), so that was eliminated. Now the p_delete_flag is forced to "1".

    The p_manage_01 Help says this: "Note that in most cases this should be set to update documents for the entire range of the database, from 000000000 to 999999999. If you set a narrower range, the word index will be incomplete. Note that the option to update a narrower range should only be used for conversion purposes."

    The solution is to run p_manage_01 for abc01 with:

    From Document Number 000000000
    To Document Number 999999999

    Note: If you want to reindex a relatively small range of documents, you can use the p_manage_40 service to generate z07 indexing requests, which will be processed by the ue_01 indexing daemon -- including Word indexing.
