Yes you need Office Web Apps to enable Document Preview. And Yes that needs a separate server/farm.

Keeping the structure as is I would go with a custom webpart (override the CoreResults web part) and do this as two queries, instead of a custom pipeline module. First execute your main query, this will give you the id's for all your metadata. Then execute a second query where you retrieve all the list items and their columns in an OR query. No need to ...

Please refer to the following blog post which described basics of sharepoint 2013 ranking models. http://powersearching.wordpress.com/2013/03/29/how-sharepoint-2013-ranking-models-work/ Please let me know which model are you interested in, I will cover this in following posts.

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 ...

We had a similar problem on extending CoreResultsWebpart, the problem was in .webpart file properties list, which lacked of some entries such as ScopeID, RelevanceView, etc. We updated the list (copying properties from the original webpart), re-deployed, removed and reinserted webpart on sharepoint page, and all went ok.

First of all you need to make sure that you have created a managed property from your crawled property. In addition make sure that it is also set up as a 'Refiner Property' as well in the managed property creation screen. Then do the following: Go the search results page and edit the refiner web part Make sure that the 'Use Default Configuration' check ...

You can still use FAST ESP - which does not require SharePoint.

If you change your code to use "yield return" you should give out id's as the crawler asks for it, instead of building up a long list internally which is then returned. I haven't tried this myself, but using yield is the perfect way to fetch data as needed. Could be worth a try. I suspect you can do something similar when it ask for each item, if you keep a ...

FAST cannot index user profiles. You need to configure enterprise search for this. Make sure User Profile Synchronization is running and you have profiles imported Give your search default content access account "Retrieve People Data for Search Crawlers" permission on User Profile Service Application Configure a new Content Source "People" that points to ...

These resources helped me with install and config: FAST Search Step-By-Step install Deployment (FAST Search Server 2010 for SharePoint) - Technet Not sure about crawling the SharePoint 2007 server - though you should have a look at Crawling Web content with the FAST Search Web crawler.

Do you have the AAMs set up for the My Site Host?

Really the best place to look through is link text as there is no short answer. There's so much good content there, giving you a link to a single document / web page is simply not enough. From my experience, if you have a small corpus < 50,000 then a single server is sufficient. I've got a pretty noddy server that is nowhere near capacity with that ...

As you probably know, SPMetal generates entity classes for LINQ for SharePoint. Most of the classes generated are used to translate LINQ syntax to CAML. Since FAST doesnt use CAML (it uses Fast Query Language -FQL) for queries, SPMetal cant be used to search FAST. Here are some links to get you started. FAST Query Language (FQL) Syntax Reference Querying ...

Yes FAST Search is a separate install. SharePoint Search is installed by default, to check look at the Service Applications in addition to the Services on your server.

For production enviroments the answer is: SharePoint and FAST run on dedicated boxes and are not installed side by side on a server. For development and demo porpose it is ok to run everything from one box. Please review Hardware and Software Requirements here: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff381239.aspx The text below is taken from it: ...

By default the FAST would store index file(s) on file system and the location would be: [InstallPath]\Data\Data_index

Firstly, to deal with the display of the results. You will most likely be using a CoreResultsWebPart to display the output of the search; this has an Xsl property which can be used to style the results in the style desired. Using this you can make the results appear as a GridView. However, there is no builtin control that will allow you to edit items ...

Figured it out with the help of the following link: http://www.sharepointsteve.com/2010/10/making-custom-user-profile-properties-searchable-in-sharepoint-2010/ Lot more to this than I expected ... but it does work.

The usage data comes from a SQL Database named WSS_UsageApplication. When you provisioned web analytics, a reporting database was created. You can query this database safely from my understanding because it was designed for reporting. It is an aggregation of data from WSS_UsageApplication. Some query data is in a table named WAQueryTextAggregationByDate. My ...

How are you adding the Core Search Results onto the page? I wonder if you populated the "Selected Columns" property, if it is being left blank or has invalid data.

The ModifiedBy column has to be accessed as 'Author', you don't have to specify a specific value as stated in the link you provided. To get ModifiedBy back, use Author.

This is not possible as FAST supports FQL (FAST Query Language) and not regular expressions. Your best bet is to create an external processors which uses regexp to find social security numbers. If you find a match, assign the value "true" or similar to a crawled property. Then create a managed property of type bool which you map this crawled property. When ...

Html content is usually in the crawled property: Property Set: 11280615-f653-448f-8ed8-2915008789f2 Variant type: 31 Name: html (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff795815.aspx) You can also add a "Spy" stage to examine what crawled properties are available in the pipeline - and see if you can find the one with the correct content. Or enable ...

what you need to do is the following: make sure that your content is indexed lookup the crawled properties, and find your custom column in it. It starts with ows_ and it ends with the internal name of your custom column. create a managed property that is mapped to your crawled property re-index go to your search center, add your managed property to the ...

It seems that you have to add LastModifiedTimeStampField property to your Finder method. Take a look at this blog posts series from Todd Baginski, especially at this one - The LastModifiedTimeStampField property on the finder method instance is set for two reasons. So search results will display the last time the data was updated So the ...

You can use Refinements to find all the possible values for Managed Properties. Refinements will also include the counts for each Managed Property. Look here for more details on how to configure: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff394639%28v=office.14%29.aspx

This is NOT possible with Managed Property keyword queries. The only wildcard capability that Sharepoint Search Server 2010 supports is "Stemming". Stemming expects the characters to be matched by the characters at the start of a string in the index. e.g. Item contains Title string "TestMe" You're query can be : Title:"Tes" and that would pick up the ...

As you have seen, the limit for the Query is actually 2048 characters. So any more than that will throw this exception. http://stackoverflow.com/questions/8061330/how-to-overcome-fast-search-char-limitation-2048 is a possible duplicate of your question, but sadly it never recieved any attention. Also this from Technet ...
