Good Evening Experts!

My question is a very simple one, the answer may not be. I am running Windows Sharepoint Server 2007. It appears to have search capabilities, how do I enable it to search folders on the Windows 2k3 server. Is this possible?

Regards,

Peter

No, it is not possible.  The search capability can only search the contents of the SQL database.

The search functionaility is for the content of the sharepoint "website" and only if you installed it will a full SQL server and not the desktop engine.
