Need some help/advice for SP search setup. A single-server MOSS 2007 farm hosts sites for 5 departments in the company. A document library corresponding to one of the department sites is growing at a rapid pace and is weighing down on server performance. This particular department also wants the search to include a network shared folder. So I want to do the following:
- Add a new server to the farm, so indexing can be offloaded from the current server.
- Find a way to make the search results for users of that department to include only their department content plus the shared folder content?
Task #1 should be straightforward. It is task #2 that stumps me because I am a total newbie with this aspect of SP customization. I imagine adding a new content source for including the shared folder content in the index is compulsory. Should I set up a new search scope for search results to include that department's content and the shared folder content?
Will appreciate any help/advice/suggestions!
