To check that the search is properly installed, a browser can be used to access the searchURI/search?afs:check=front-end address.
The reply must be an XML feed containing information about the search engine, in a reply set with the URI set with "AFS v7 check feed" like in the following example:
<afs:meta uri="AFS v7 check feed" …/>
<afs:reply docId="1" uri="http://www.antidot.net">
<afs:text>Your AFS v7 front end is operational</afs:text>
These pre-checks ensure that the search web service is properly set up, meaning that the web front-end and AFS binary are correctly set up. However, they exclude the Query Manager or any service instance.
