Hello,

I have just implemented a 2008R2 Terminal server, and users mapped drives do not seem to be indexing. I have the windows search services running on the terminal, but cannot figure out what to do to fix it? The machine with the shares is running 2003.

Any ideas?

Thanks,

I'm not sure what you mean by "users mapped drives are not indexing", perhaps you could elaborate on what you are expecting to happen and what you are experiencing.

Hello,

When you do a search on a mapped drive (it may contain more than 3000 files) a search takes a very long time. Whereas if it was indexed locally (like their outlook) a searh would take seconds.

what OS are the desktops running ? I'm going to guess XP with desktop search enabled and the mapped drive added to the indexer.

Sorry, penny has just dropped, the file server is only 2003.

You need Windows Search 4 on the 2003 server.
