Adobe Forums: Verity Spider - Bad Keys

Adobe Forums: Verity Spider - Bad Keys

It was a painful experience to make the vspider work on the win 2008 r2 for new install of coldfusion 9.

I had to move our client application from ColdFusion MX 6.1 to ColdFusion 9 server and the verity eat up lot of time than I was anticipating, the solution was right in-front of me on this top link forum post but I couldn't understand what was needed.

Finally downloading the ColdFusion 9 Documentation and using the mkvdk command line as documented solved the issue. In ColdFusion 6.1 things were different and the automated script that I wrote 5 years ago has worked like a charm so far but now that I was upgrading the client application, things didn't worked out as expected.

If any one has to end up supporting and migrating a ColdFusion 6 automated search index to ColdFusion 9 than here is the solution for you:

1. Log In to Administrator site
2. Delete the migration indexes that are not working in the ColdFusion Collections
3. Delete the folder's of the indexes on physical drive
4. Restart ColdFusion Search Services
5. Modify and Run the below command for your migration indexes.

mkvdk -create -collection C:\ColdFusion9\verity\collections\YourSiteIndex -style C:\ColdFusion9\verity\Data\stylesets\ColdFusionVspider

The above mkvdk is one line .bat file for me.

6. Run your search index call, I use the command line utility

C:\ColdFusion9\verity\k2\_nti40\bin\vspider -cmdfile C:\Inetpub\YourWebSite\search_index.txt > C:\Inetpub\YourWebSite\search_index.log

and the search_index.txt has the following text

-common C:\ColdFusion9\verity\k2\common
-collection C:\ColdFusion9\verity\collections\YourSearchIndex
-host localhost
-loglevel verbose
-locale englishx
-indinclude "*/resources/news.cfm*" "*/resources/news_list.cfm"
-include "*/resources/news.cfm*" "*/resources/news_list.cfm"
-indskip a "*to parent directory*"
-nofollow "*parent directory*"
-delay 100
-connections 2
-indexers 1
-retry 2

Hope anyone who needs some minor help with migrating the ColdFusion 6.1 automated batch script of the search index will find this post to be helpful.

Series: Part 1 - Put your domains to work for you

Have you registered domains and don’t know what to do with them? Or did you registered the domains with hyphens or numbers rather than word so that others may not steal your brand? Well now you have a solution to use those domains and put your domains to work for you.In this series I will be posting many solutions for you so that you can pick and choose the solution that works for you.The first and simplest solution is to have a landing page with basic text. Second, to put the landing page to work for you, you need to add a some links, and these could be called referral links or affiliates text links or banner links. As for as the rules and best practices of posting referral links or affiliates links, I will have to post an entire blog on the topic. For now, set up your domain to have a landing page, a page which is not the default from your domain registrar. Yes this may involve you to setup a webhosting account, but don’t worry now a days, companies like GoDaddy and other registrar’…

Microsoft Band and Windows Phone 8 Support

Will Microsoft Band be supported on Windows Phone 8? Without the 8.1 update?
I have been searching for answers since the Band was announced, but so far can't find any notes regarding my old phone.
I even have Windows Phone 7 but it seems that will be a no no from Microsoft.
If you have something to share please post it below.
