Adobe PDF IFilter v6.0 indexing problem

  Asked By: Nichole    Date: Aug 20    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 10853

I have two Sharepoint installations

The first one(One Machine Installation) has SQL server and Sharepoint
Portal Server installed on same machine

The second one(Two Machine Installation) has SQL server installed on
one machine and sharepoint Portal Server installed on the other

I had installed Adobe PDF IFilter v6.0 on both the installations. In
the two machine instance the IFilter is installed on the Shrepoint
Portal server machine.

While in the one machine installation the search is indexing pdf
files, in the two machine installation pdf files are not getting

The versions of all softwares in both the instances is exactly the

Any thoughts on what might be wrong.

Do I have to install IFilter on SQL Server machine also in the two
machine installation.

What you need to do is make sure on the two-machine instance  that PDF
files are included. Go to Site Settings >> Configure Search and Indexing
>> Include File Types. Make sure that PDF is in the list.

I believe a Full Index update will be necessary after you add PDF to the
list, but don't quote me on that.
