I have a virtual directory... located in a shared resource (\\server\directory)... the IIS can see this resource... and show all the pages that this directory contains.

when i try to index this resource, the index server shows the number of documents in this directory... but not create the index. Searching with the test page.... the index server not provide any result.

I make a test... i copy this remote directory in the local disk of the machine where the IIS and the index server runs. I create a new catalog with the this new local directory. The index server now show the number of documents in this directory... and index all the documents!! Searching with the test page the index server show results!.

What's the problem?

TIA

Is this on IIS 5 or 6?

I know 6 has problems (apperently is a security issue) with Mapped drives, but using UNC or IP should work fine.

NOTE: If a virtual directory is on an NTFS drive, the access permissions for the directory must match the settings in Internet Information Server or Internet Information Services. If they do not match, the most restrictive settings are used. For example, if you give a folder Write permission but give a particular user group only Read access permissions in NTFS, those users cannot write files to the folder because the Read permission is more restrictive.
