Here's an article on how to enable content search in Windows 7. It should be relevant to Windows Server 2008 also:

@paulsauve: it only works if the "Allow files on this drive to have contents indexed in addition to file properties" is checked.
On most servers I looked at (OP was for Windows Server 2008) that particular box is unchecked...
Index content also
