How to install and configure the Indexing Service
By default, the Indexing Service is not installed on a Windows Server 2008-based computer. To install the Indexing Service on a Windows Server 2008-based computer, you must first use Server Manager to add the File Services role to the server. Then, you must add the Indexing Service role service that is available under the Windows Server 2003 File Services role. To do this, follow these steps:

   1. Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Administrative Tools, and then click Server Manager.
   2. In the console tree of Server Manager, right-click Roles, and then click Add Roles.
   3. In the Add Roles Wizard, click Next.
   4. On the Select Server Roles page, click to select the File Services check box, and then click Next.
   5. On the File Services page, click Next.
   6. On the Select Roles Services page, click to select the Indexing Service check box under Windows Server 2003 File Services, and then click Next.
   7. On the Confirm Installation Selections page, click Install.
   8. Follow the instructions in the Add Roles Wizard to complete the installation.

After you install the Indexing Service, you must create a new Microsoft Management Console (MMC) snap-in for the Indexing Service. To do this, follow these steps:

   1. Click Start, click Run, type mmc, and then press ENTER.
   2. On the File menu, click Add/Remove Snap-in.
   3. In the Available snap-ins list, click Indexing Service, and then click Add.
   4. In the Connect to Computer dialog box, click Local computer: (the computer this console is running on), and then click Finish.
   5. To close the Add or Remove Snap-ins dialog box, click OK. The console displays the Indexing Service snap-in.
