Project 2003 and Full-Text Search / Full-Text Index

Post by Matt Quin » Fri, 31 Oct 2003 04:09:25


I have configured Windows Sharepoint Services for full-
text searching by setting the appropriate option in WSS /
Configure Administrative Virtual Server / Configure Full-
Text Search.

The full-text searching does not return any documents. My
SQL DBA informs me that the SQL instance has full-text
indexing enabled by default but that in order to get this
working that certain columns in the tables have to be
indexed.

Can anyone help me get full-text search / full-text index
set up for WSS for Project 2003?

Thank you,

Matt:

Is the indexing service turned on and started on the server? If it is, and
you have configured this after installing Project Server, see the following:

Thanks for the reply.

The Indexing Service is disabled by default on a Windows
Server 2003 installation. I installed WSS (v2) from the
Project Server 2003 guide.

Are you saying the Indexing Service for Windows Server
2003 is a requirement for WSS?

I enabled Indexing Service on WSS server -- Add/Remove
Windows Components. Next I went to IIS Manager and set the
Indexing Service to "Allowed" under Web Service
Extensions.

Is there anything else I need to do get search working on
a WSS server? Can you point me to a document that explains
the configuration of indexing/searching for WSS v2?


Thanks,

Matt
