If you’re using Enterprise Organizer Pro’s Advanced Search engine, you can share search indexes on the network so every workstation searches off of the same index. This has the added bonus of reducing network traffic because only one machine maintains the index for all of the other machines.
Normally you would only share an index for network cabinets. Local cabinets should have a local index.
First you should decide where to put your shared network search index. It should be a machine with good processor overhead and plenty of drive capacity. It does not have to be the same machine where the cabinets reside.
Next you need to point each machine to the index path you decided on in the last step. To do this:
When you share an index, one machine is the index owner and handles all of the indexing. Only the index owner can update the index. The rest of the machines just read the index for searching. By default, the first machine to index the cabinet will become the owner. You can designate an owner by following these steps:
You’ll also want to make sure that the auto-indexer is activated on this machine. See Activate Auto-Indexing for instructions.
