Windows Server 2012 Search Indexing issue
Posted on 2016-08-18
I have a Windows 2012 Standard server that serves as a file server. I would like to index these files for searching. I have installed the Windows Search Service, and it has started. I went into Indexing Options and chose the locations I would like indexed. When I restart the service and select to "Rebuild the Index" it does not index anything. I see the following entries in Event Viewer:
"The update cannot be started because all of the content sources were excluded by site path rules, or removed from the index configuration. Context: Windows Application, SystemIndex Catalog. Details: (HRESULT: 0x1) (0x000000001)"
"Crawl could not be started on content source <B:\Data\>. Context: Windows Application, SystemIndex Catalog Details: The specified address was excluded from the index. The site path rules may have to be modified to include this address. (HRESULT: 0x80040d07) (0x80040d07)"
My Index Location in "Indexing Options" is set to several subfolders under B:\Data
