Indexing Files on Microsoft Server 2003 for Desktop Search, HOW ?

Hi,

we want to install every User the Microsoft Desktop Search to also Index the FIleshares which are created with Microsoft Server 2003.
BUT not every user should index the fileserver.The server should create an index/crawl his own Files/Folders etc and the users should use thyere desktop search to search WITHIN the former created Index of the Server.

We dont want the heavy load of 200 Clients which are indexing the Fileserver.......

This looks like an HTTP powered Indexing Service. Is it possible to re-configure/edit the Desktop Search which is already working at the clients, for our shares ? instead of installing this HTTP "workaround" ?

the problem of using the microsoft desktop search by the clients is that it indexes the file server share whenever it is mounted or shared by them. this would increase the traffic between the clients and the file server. thats why i had made earlier suggestion.

cause of that i said in the very first posting that a solution which indicates that all clients are indexing the server is not wanted.

the server should index itself and should share the indexed "database" to every user which uses the search . is there any whay to acomplish this ?
