Adobe I-filter for SharePoint 2010

  Date: Oct 13    Category: Sharepoint 2010    Views: 979

I have a farm that has two web front ends, two applications servers with one of
them running CA and a back end SQL cluster.
There are several posts on how to install and configure the IFilter, but so far,
none of them actually tell me which servers to do this on.
I assume I have to put the icon and modify docicon.xml on ALL SP servers, but
thats I all I know offhand.

Were do I install the adobe I filter and make my registry edits?

You need to install it on Index server. Need to put the icons in all the WFE

Just a bit of advice. We had been using adobe ifilter for years and about 2
years ago our users noticed that a bunch of pdfs were not being indexed all of a
sudden. Nothing we did with the adobe ifilter would resolve the problem.

We then tried FoxIT ifilter and it indexed every single one of our PDF files.
No, I don't own stock in the company or sell the product!!

If you do decide to use the adobe ifilter, you might want to do some testing to
make sure it is doing the job.

Also, from what I've read/heard, the Foxit filter takes full advantage of
64-bit processing and is therefore much more performant. There seem to be
lots of other advantages like that when using the paid third-party version
as opposed to the free Adobe version. YMMV.

agreed use Ifoxit Filter for SP2007 & 2010 and absolutely love it.

Not to mention that the Adobe iFilter is free but the FoxIT iFilter incurs a
charge. Although the FoxIT iFilter also seems to be a little faster with
indexing PDFs, the licensing is something that really needs to be weighed in.

I have seen cases where the FoxIt ifilter stopped indexing pdfs also. A
reinstall fixed the issue. May have been the same issue with the Adobe ifilter.
