We have a Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 farm that consists of 4 servers:
- Admin Server
- Search Server
- Web Front End 1 (Load-Balanced)
- Web Front End 2 (Load-Balanced)
A user has reported that Office 2007 documents are not being indexed. In troubleshooting the problem, I found these articles:
When I look on our Admin Server and our Search Server, the Filter Packs have already been successfully installed, and the entries in the registry are correct. When I look on the 2 web front end servers, they do NOT have the filter backs installed.
I'm attempting to take over some of the administrative responsibilities from people who have left the company. I'm not sure if this is a new issue or if it has always been this way.
My question is - do the search filter packs need to be installed on the web front end servers? Or is installing them on the admin and search servers adequate? If the latter, what else could be causing this problem?
Thanks in advance,
