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.

Google Mail Hangout Message Upon Delete Action

Don't know if I get annoyed this much as the Google's Mail Hangout Message, when I select to delete number or messages.

"Because some are part of a Hangout, they have been removed from your Mail mailbox, but will still show up in other Hangouts apps and chat windows."

The message takes over the entire tool bar, and does not allow me to repeat the actions, it does not goes away until way late and would have appreciated but not allowed is a option to close. If I want to delete more items on the same page than i have to refresh the window to repeat the task.

Wish the future update can allow me to close this message.

Mobile Screenshot Crime

Why-O-Why am I not able to take a screenshot on Phones? I had the same issue on Windows phone and now I feel the same with Google Nexus. Why can't we have a simple option next to flash light for screenshot or some other combination that will not open up the volume option or the power off or restart option.

There must me a better way to take a screenshot. No, not through some third party app but rather a build in option. Who would have thought that with all the camera and video features build into the phones, we would actually be struggling with taking a screenshot?
I don't know if it's just me but I can't seem to have my thumb or fingers in sync to the mini-mils second. I end-up almost always on volume popup, or if I try my luck to the other dark side; the power off popup; it should be a crime to not be able to take a darn screenshot, or allow some of us to choose different key combination to take a screenshot.

It seems the culprit is the phone case; so much f…

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.
