MS Win2K Server and Indexing Service...

I am having some major issues with the Indexing Service. I have two servers: one for development and one for production (or live). The development box indexes the folders I told it to perfectly. When I run a query, the correct information comes up.

On the other hand, when I try to index my site on the production box, it is not the same. For instance, the file size for the catalog for the dev box is 21 MB. For the live box, it is 4 MB. Also, when I run a query using the exact text that I did for development, I get a "No Document Found" message even though the exact file is on both boxes.

I have exhausted myself on MS's web site and found every Knowledge Base article on the Indexing service as well as serach all over the Internet to find out why the Indexing Service is not indexing my site on the live box. All the settings and configurations betwenn the two boxes are the same as well as the versions of the software (SP4).

Does anyone know what other reason could be causing the Indexing service to work fine on one box but not fine on a box that is exactly the same? Please help.

Also, if you want to see the reult of the query live, go to http://www.gms.state.ga.us. Thanks experts...

Make sure the System account has permissions to the files that you want to index.  I believe that caused a problem for me in the past.

Well, I'm not saure if that worked or not but I beleive that you suggestion coupled with something else I couldn't beleive I didn't catch. Right-click on the folder(s) that you are wanting to index and then click on Properties. Then, click on Advanced. There are a couple of check-boxes there and one says, "For fast searching, allow Indexing Service to index this folder." Boy I sure felt like an idiot. Sometimes its the simple things we miss. Thanks for your help.
