Indexing SharePoint servers geographically dispersed

  Asked By: Vikat    Date: Dec 03    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1043

We are in possibly a unique situation - we have 8 full SharePoint
installations - 1 HQ and 7 separate child organizations. HQ wants to
crawl content on each of the 7 child command servers so search results
contain company-wide results. Our concern is that crawling a server
that might have less-that optimal bandwidth with kill the crawling.

One thought we have had: is it possible to have the HQ index server
consume the index from the child organizations...kind of like merge the
child index with the parent at the parent. This might be really out
there...this was a question that was brought up by a manager and so I
wanted to pose it to the list.
