We have a particular site collection that is becoming a problem (with huge amounts of content, large lists etc), and it is massively interfering with the indexing process. Whilst ideally we would sort out the large list problem itself, this is not currently possible without disrupting BAU, so...
Is it possible to separate a site collection out to a different content source so that they can be managed separately? I know this is possible by setting different start addresses on content sources, but then we run into problems when trying to include the root because of the error "The start address X already exists in this or another content source".
Currently we have the default "Local SharePoint sites" content source, but in an ideal world we would end up with the following:
- Content source A
- Content source B
Is it possible to do this? Please note that this is because we want the content to actually be indexed separately on different crawl schedules, not because we want them to be separately searchable, so search scopes aren't an option. Thanks in advance all!
