Customizing search

  Asked By: Haresh    Date: Feb 04    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 780

i want to customize the search functionality in SharePoint such that i
will be able to search all the portals cretaed on a particular server
through a single portal. This search should also include results from
the sites that are created under the other portal servers. Is there
some out of the box feature through which we can configure the same or
some third party tool needs to be used for the same?

The easiest way to do this would be to implement Shared Services. With
this any search  done on the parent portal  site will contain hits from
all child portal sites.

If you do go this way you will need to set up content sources on the
parent portal for all the child portal sites  (at least 2 for each -
their portal content and their Site Directory)
