How do I correctly use Windows Search on a WHS shared volume? RRS feed

  • Question

  • How do I correctly use Windows Search on a WHS shared volume?  I have Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Windows 7 computers that share a volume \\HPSERVER\Shared.

    How do I use Windows Search to index this volume?  I would like the WHS machine to do the actual indexing and have the clients query the index on the server.  I do *NOT* want each client to separately index the share.

    I hear that this can be done but I have not seen any instructions on how to do it, especially from the WHS Console.

  • It's already done for you in Vista and Windows 7. Open up windows Explorer, navigate to a share on your server, and use the search box.
    I'm not on the WHS team, I just post a lot. :)
