Setting attribute for indexing service from command line

Posted on 2005-03-10

Last Modified: 2012-08-13
When I get the help files for my website from source control, they do not have the attribute set to allow the Microsoft Indexing service to index the files.

I can set from the UI by selecting the properties of the root folder - however I need to do this from the command line - from within my buildtool.

attrib does appear to support this attribute - is there some other command line option?

read the help for it - but not sure how to find the correct info for the extended attributes.
Any idea where I can find that info?
