Crawling - Search

  Asked By: Joshua    Date: Jan 08    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 857

Overview:
We have Six web front end servers
1. Single - CA server
2. Two - WFE servers (no applications / services are running on these servers)
3. Three - App servers
Two - indexing servers
One - query servers

so whenever crawling happens it should run on both the indexing servers however it is happening only on one Index server...

Issue:
Crawling happens only on one WFE server and not an all the Indexing Servers.

Technical Review
This happens despite the "Use all web front end servers for crawling is specified " search setting for this farm.

How many SSP's do u have?
If u have one SSP then it will only run  on one server  as u can assign only one index  server per SSP

It's not necessary that SharePoint will crawl all the WFE's at the same time.It will pick on it's own

do you mean to say even if we've three WFE, SSP will take any one of the WFE at a time to perform the crawling  and rest of them will be idle during that time?

if so, what is the use of enabling - Use all web  front end  servers for crawling is specified ?
