Configuring user browsers for Enterprise Vault Search
Client users require an HTML5-compatible web browser to benefit from all the new features in Enterprise Vault Search. Older browsers are supported, but the client experience may be compromised.
For the latest information on supported web browsers, see the Enterprise Vault Compatibility Charts.
Enterprise Vault Search uses the browser's language for the default time and date format in advanced search, the reading pane, and search results. If the browser is set to a language that is not supported, Enterprise Vault Search defaults to English (US). You may want to use a Group Policy Object (GPO) to set the Internet Explorer language for users. Note that users can change their Enterprise Vault Search language in their Enterprise Vault Search regional preferences.
Most users should not experience any problems when they access Enterprise Vault Search. However, they must set the following in their browsers to use Enterprise Vault Search:
Allow cookies and local storage.
Disable private browsing or the settings that prevent their browsers from storing data about their browsing.
If an option to not save encrypted pages to disk is available, disable it.
You can also minimize potential problems by configuring their web browsers to treat Enterprise Vault Search as a trusted site. How you do this varies from one browser to another, but the procedure for Internet Explorer is as described below.
If you use Active Directory, you can employ a group policy to apply the zone change to all the domain users. To do this, you must edit the Internet Explorer Maintenance settings within the policy.
To configure Internet Explorer to trust Enterprise Vault Search
- On the client computer, open Internet Explorer.
- On the Tools menu, click Internet Options.
- Click the Security tab.
- Click Trusted sites, and then click Sites.
- Enter the fully-qualified domain name of the server on which you installed Enterprise Vault Search, and then click Add. For example, you might type vault.company.com.
- Close the Trusted sites dialog box, and then close the Internet Options dialog box.
