We are looking for a way of indexing word documents on our sbs2003 server in order to be able to do searches from the pc's. We have approximately 100 Gb of word files (200,000 files), and running Windows XP-Word 2003 / Windows 7-Word 2010 on the workstations. Doing searches using XP or Windows7 basic search feature takes a very long time.
Did a bit of research, and Search Server Express (MSSX) on sbs2003 seems to be an issue. Can we use the Windows Server 2003 Indexing Service and run searches on these indexes from Windows XP/7 Search utility ?
What would be your suggestions ?
