Indexing Secured File Shares

  Asked By: Jackson    Date: Sep 30    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1208

I have indexed several file shares as content sources in a SPS 2001
workspace. Users are granted access to the file shares based on their
membership in Active Directory groups.

SPS searching works for the indexed file shares that grant access to
all authenticated users. The file shares with restricted access,
however, return no search results in SPS for users who have access to
that file share.

The default access account for indexing the file shares is a domain
administrator. The log files show indexing was successful.

We index many file  shares and files shares  show up in results  of searches. Our
problem is that when people click on the links to the documents on the file
share they can't get to them. because they down have access  to the share.
