1 - When an index is accessed for the first time, search for and flag unnormalized Katakana characters in its list of words.
Determines whether Enterprise Vault searches for and flags unnormalized Katakana characters in indexes when it accesses those indexes for the first time. Katakana is a Japanese writing system that is most often used for transcription of words from foreign languages. When unnormalized, these characters have not been converted to lowercase during the indexing process. Flagging these characters lets applications such as Compliance Accelerator and Discovery Accelerator make a judgment as to whether their search results are 100% reliable.
As Katakana width normalization affects Japanese content, it is important that Japanese customers turn on this setting. Similarly, Compliance Accelerator and Discovery Accelerator customers who may be worried about unnormalized content going undiscovered should also turn on this setting.
For Enterprise Vault 10.0 and later, CheckWidthNormalization affects 32-bit
indexing only. For 64-bit indexing, there is no equivalent setting.
