This is listed in several places on the interwebs. But I suggest look at this official KB article: SharePoint 2010 - Configuring Adobe PDF iFilter 9 for 64-bit platforms, http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2293357.

Yes we do need it. Search indexing is really made up of two items: the actual index file which contains keyword AND the search database that contains metadata. The two are combined when a search is initiated The search database contains settings related to search (content sources, confguration, all that good stuff). In addition it will also contain the list ...

This will be exactly because there is no file extension. The search crawler (or gatherer) relies on the file extension to know which piece of software (IFilter) to load to open the file and index it. No way around it, this is just how Search in SharePoint works.

A crawl is never started by anything changing in SharePoint, neither content nor security changes. A crawl is either started manually or according to the specified schedule. If you're using search, then you probably have a crawl schedule set up which does incremental (and sometimes full) crawls. The full crawls with crawl everything and the incremental ...

Toni, application pages are not crawled by the crawler when SharePoint is crawled. The crawler uses the SiteData.asmx/GetContent to find content to crawl for a web application. Since application pages are not a part of the actual content they are not being discovered. If you want to crawl application pages you need to set up a standard web crawl content ...

Maybe you are running into a loopback authentication issue. This will happen if content is accessed from a server to the same server using an alternate DNS name. For example: Server name: srvSP2010wfe Portal URL pointing to server (1.): http://portal DNS config: portal A IP.OF.Server.1 The resolution is described here: ...

You also need to install the iFilter from Adobe in order to allow SharePoint to index the PDFs. The configuration changes you made simply tells SharePoint to index PDF, but the iFilter is actually what does the work. Start here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2293357

Here's a couple of options for you: In Central Admin, go to your Search Service Application (Content SSA if you use FAST Search for SharePoint) then navigate to Server Name Mappings and create one. Set the "Address in index" field value to your Extended zone url (the one configured to be crawled in the content source) and set the "Address in search ...

The Technet article Estimate performance and capacity requirements for SharePoint Server 2010 Search provides the following formula to estimate the size of index partitions: ContentDBSum = Size of content that is crawled. TotalIndezSize = ContentDBSum * 0.35 QueryComponentIndexSize = TotalIndexSize / Number of index partitions The size of the index ...

Yes, you can crawl file shares with SharePoint 2007. This is how you can configure crawling, then you should configure full crawl and incremental crawl schedule.

Out of the box SharePoint will not be able to crawl the contents of these files. I would check 2 things. First, make sure the file type is in the allowed file types to make sure that the results will be available. Second, if you want to be able to search by contents, you will need to have an iFilter for these file types. Then SharePoint will be able to crack ...

SharePoint Search does by default not index unapproved items as well as draft versions (minor versions). This is so because the search crawling account only has read access to the content and only users with contribute access or better can see unapproved documents and draft versions. Consequently, you could get around the issue by granting contribute access ...

I finally found the issue and it wasn't the publishing feature that was causing it. The effected libraries had the option Library Settings > Versioning Settings > Draft item security set to 'Only users who can edit items'. My crawl account did have full control of the documents in the library and I logged in using the crawl account to confirm this. When i ...

XML files are searched and indexed natively in SharePoint 2010 using the out-of-the-box engine (FAST is just a search add-on/alternative but uses the native engine under the covers so it's a supplement and will search XML files using the native engine). It's a little confusing because you say you're using FAST (generally a product related to SharePoint ...

Add class="noindex" to your footer <div> See Control Search Indexing (Crawling) Within a Page with Noindex

So while writing the question i answered my own question. "Draft Item Security" setting says "Only Users who can EDIT". So we must change to the permission-level from Full Read to Full Control, not the cleanest way to solve this, but it works. Have any input please let me know :)

Yes, automaticly. (Not "service", but "content source") It will prevent you from creating two content source with intersections. Up2u. Choice the most comfortable way for you. To disable crawl choice "No" in the schedule drop down. Continuous crawl work every 15 minutes by default. If you have just one crawl server it will not have any difference from ...

you should set the NoCrawl Property to true of the column. SPField.NoCrawl

You cannot index a list that exceeds the threshold. This is explained in this Microsoft article: Manage lists and libraries with many items Because creating an index requires accessing all items in the list, it's possible you may be blocked from creating an index for a column if the entire list exceeds the List View Threshold. If this occurs, do the ...

Your understanding is not correct. So rule, if a crawl is running and schedule for another crawl schedule (Lets say full) on the same content source is approached then running crawl always took the priority & continue. Now Full crawl will be skipped and wait for the next schedule which is next week in your case. If you don't want to overlap them then i ...

I am surprised that an incremental crawl is not updating the permissions, I definitely believe that it should, but I haven't had a similar scenario to yours in some time, so can't be sure. The only similar scenario I've seen recently was unfortunately with SharePoint Online, so it may not be exactly the same for on-prem, but my experiences of that were ...

Have you done Full Crawl after setting up the rules?

You should just join the server to the farm and then go to Central Admin > Farm Search Admin and select Modify Topologies. From there you can select which server to run which roles for search.

The ranking algorithm is based on the BM25 ranking model and takes into account various factors such as Contextual Relevance, Proximity, Metadata, Language, File Type, Anchor Text, URL Depth and URL Matching. You can influence it by going to the Search Administration page and going to Authoratative Pages in the Queries and Results section. This allows you ...

That's how you do it, but use the class noindex instead, like this: <div class="noindex"> footer </div>

You need to install the 64-bit IFilter if your WSS/MSSX is 64-bit, otherwise 32 bit is the one to use. You cannot just install the reader on the server (which I do not think you should do at all - there are currently no more unsecure product than Acrobat Reader!).

In Search configuration in Central Administration, make sure you have added .sav to the "File Types" to include in crawls (left-hand column, under "Crawling"). You may also need an iFilter to enable search to crack open the files, depending on their format.

HA! Nailed it. I had a look at the logs of an IIS box in our DMZ that was showing the same activity. It turns out in IIS anonymous access was turned on (of course) as well as Windows Integrated Authentication. So what's happening is that the spider is trying to use its credentials (which are no good on this machine as it's not on the domain) instead of ...
