Prolaw and SQL Replication – Creating, Breaking, and Updating Prolaw

Monday, January 30th, 2012 | ProLaw Case Management, Uncategorized | Mike Smith

This guide will cover the various aspects of replication for a Prolaw SQL server.Ā  If you have a replicated environment and are updating any aspects of Prolaw such as the custom tabs or updating Prolaw itself, you will need to stop replication first.Ā  You may also refer to this guide if you need to set up a replicated environment.Ā  This guide will focus on the SQL portion itself, assuming you already have the document shares replicated via DFS or other means. You may refer to other posts on this blog on how to set up test versions of Prolaw or how to install updates.

Autonomy IDOL Indexer does not index zipped file names by default

Thursday, December 15th, 2011 | iManage/ FileSite, Technical | Mike Smith

If you file a zipped archive, the name of the zip file as well as the zipped file’s contents are indexed.Ā  However, if you search for the file name of a file that is in that zip, it will not return any results.Ā  This is by default, and needs a slight adjustment on the IDOL index server.

FileSite: Emails that have no header information from import

Tuesday, November 8th, 2011 | iManage/ FileSite, Technical | Mike Smith

If you are migrating to, or have imported emails into FileSite, you may not have the header information imported from the email.Ā  This can include the To, From, Sent Time, and Received Time.Ā  Luckily, Autonomy has a utility to open the emails and import the header information, but it requires a decent amount of setup and testing prior to running.Ā  You will need full access to SQL and the WorkSite server for this task.Ā  You will also have to download and install the Resource Kit from Autonomy (available from their support site with login).

FileSite folder views in Outlook displaying incorrect column headers
