Portal Search feature

So ever tried the portal search option to find out something? Content reference? Menu?

This search index has been buit by a delivered AE, PORTAL_INDEX. Navigation of the same is below:

PeopleTools >> Portal >> Build Registry Search Index

To build a search index, go to build search index page using above navigation. Add a run control ID. Select the All Installed Languages box according to your setup. Run the build process. Scheduler starts the Application Engine program named PORTAL_INDEX. Got to Process Monitor link to view the status of the index build process.

Depending on your setup, say in development instance, there are many Menu/content reference additions in a week or so, you may wish to schedule the process using/making any recurrence definition in Scheduler as per requirement (daily, weekly etc…).

    I would like to install peoplesoft in my personal comp. Could you please tell how should I go about doing it.
    I came accross the site edelivery.oracle.com providing the files for downloading and installation of peoplesoft.
    But if somebody could guide me on which files are mandatory and can i install only peopletools first ..is the HRMS/CRM package type necessary to be installed.
    And I already have oracle 10g installed on my pc.Should I still download the files related to oracle database from the site.

    Please advise.
    Thanks in advance.
