A. Setup Indexing Service on database server:
To install the Indexing Service on a Windows Server 2008-based computer, you must first use Server Manager to add the File Services role to the server. Then, you must add the Indexing Service role service that is available under the Windows Server 2003 File Services role. To do this, follow these steps:
After you install the Indexing Service, you must create a new Microsoft Management Console (MMC) snap-in for the Indexing Service. To do this, follow these steps:
-Create a new catalog using the right click menu of the Indexing Service:
-Name the catalog [community name].
-Specify a location for the catalog anywhere on the database server.
Now add a directory to the new catalog.
-Select the catalog>directories>New>directory
-Enter the share location (server\[share name]\FTR)
-In the add directory dialog enter the admin domain account's login information.
-Indexing service setup completed.
