We use windows desktop search on a Windows 2003 terminal server.

The problem is when he starts indexing the server slows down and the users cant work normally
I searched the internet but i could not find anything about how to schedule the Indexing process.
I want to make sure that the Indexing takes place at night.

Does anybody know if this is possible?

Thanks.

Sorry, but I don't think it has the ability to limit when indexing is done.  I've reviewed the admin guide that MS supplies with the Desktop Search and it has plenty of info on what you can limit the indexing of but they don't offer any info on setting time constraints on when it will index.  And since both the search function and the index function are both run by the same process you can't simply shutdown the indexing service.  They did have some info in the admin guide on limiting user ability to control the indexing service as users on the term server can kick off the index now option.  Check the link below.
