I have a SharePoint 2010 portal and using FAST search server for search. I have 3 content sources configured in FAST connector SSA.

My task is to create a new site collection under main portal and a new content source. Search for this site should only return results from the new content source. It should not bring any results from the top 3 existing content sources. How to configure this??

Right now my new site return results from all content sources and I have to use Site refiners to filter on specific site. Customer doesn't like this way. How can I make the search to skip the other sites (content sources). ????

I have attached an image to show what I have and what I want.

Thanks for your replies.

If you don't want the other content sources to display in search results, you need to remove them from your content sources in the FAST Search Service Application and re-crawl.  This will remove their entries from your search databases.


Well...that's not what I want. I want them to be in the FAST search service application because they are being used in another web application. I just need to define a scope for my new web app so that it shows only only the search results from a specific content source. ANy idea???
You can create another search service application for that web application. That way you have two different search databases.
