How to index my secured shared network drive using SharePoint 2010 ?

Hi All,

I'm confused in creating internal portal page in my team for providing interface of office document content search located in shared NFS directory with security permission.

If anyone can show me where to configure this setting that would be great.

Thanks.

you can create a content source for indexing the content from shared network drive to be crawled as File System source. The source can be defined as shared location in an UNC folder format.

For configuring the Shared network drive for crawling
1) Goto Central Administration
2) Goto Manage Service Applications
3) Goto Search Service Application
4) Click on Content Source
5) Click on Add Content Source
6) Provide a name and location of the content source
The path of the location should be provided in UNC Path
if the shared drive is X drive then the path should be
\\<Machine Name>\X


For creating a scope in FAST 2010 Search for Sharepoint

To create a search scope at the search service application level using the graphical user interface

   1. Verify that the user account that is performing this procedure is a service application administrator for the FAST Query Search service application (FAST Query SSA).
   2.In Central Administration, in the Application Management section, click Manage service applications.
   3.On the Manage Service Applications page, in the list of service applications, click FAST Query SSA (the name of the FAST Query SSA).
   4.On the Search Administration page, in the Quick Launch, under Queries and Results, click Scopes.
   5.To create a new scope, click New Scope.
   6.In the Title and Description section, type a title and description for the search scope.
   7.In the Target Results Page section, select one of the following options:
          * Use the default Search Results Page. Select this option if you want search results from this search scope to be presented by using the standard Search Results page (Searchresults.aspx).
          * Specify a different page for searching this scope. Select this option if you want search results from this search scope to be presented on a custom webpage. If you select this option, in the Target results page box, type the URL for the custom search results page.

   8.Click OK to create the scope and return to the View Scopes page.

To add scope rules to the scope

   1.On the View Scopes page, in the list of scopes, point to the name of the scope that you want to edit, click the arrow that appears, and then click Edit Properties and Rules.
   2.To add a new rule, on the Scope Properties and Rules page, in the Rules section, click New Rule.
   3.In the Scope Rule Type section, select one of the following options:
          * Web Address. Select this option if you want the scope to include or exclude content from any resource in the search index that can be identified either by a URL (such as Web sites, file shares, and Microsoft Exchange Server public folders) or by a host name, domain name, or subdomain name.
          * Property Query. Select this option if you want the scope to include or exclude content that has a managed property that has a particular value. For example, Author="John Doe".
            If you want the scope to include or exclude content that was crawled by using a particular content source, click Property Query and select ContentSource from the list. Enter a value for the content source property, for example Local SharePoint sites.
          * All Content. Select this option if the rule should not restrict the scope (the scope will include or exclude all content in the index).

   4.In the Behavior section, select an option to specify how this rule combines with other rules to define the scope:
          * Include – Any item that matches this rule will be included, unless the item is excluded by another rule. Use this option to apply an “OR” rule.
          * Require – Every item in the scope must match this rule. Use this option to apply an “AND” rule.
          * Exclude – Items matching this rule will be excluded from the scope. Use this option to apply an “AND NOT” rule.

   5.Click OK.
