A while ago I built a Linux 1.36TB fileserver that the apple macs use to store files etc. (using netatalk)
The fileserver so far has 122GB of files covering 40,000 files. When the users are searching using Sherlock 2 on Mac OS 9 searching for files on the share is very slow because rather than Sherlock 2 looking at an indexed database of the share it's looking file by file for what the user wants. (very slowly I might add)
I've noticed that file indexing of network shares works fine on OS X, however some programs we use are not yet OS X capable. Therefore we are locked on OS 9 for the moment.
So, is it possible to get Sherlock 2 to index network shares?
