Search server provide services to two farms

  Asked By: Madeline    Date: Jun 21    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1048

we are using WSS3 and have one testfarm and one productionfarm.

We would like to use a single (physical) search server that can provide search
service for both the testfarm and productionfarm. This means search in two
different site collections (test vs production) that should not be mixed

Is this possible using MS Search Server 2008 Express? If not, is there some
other way we can configure a single search server for use in two farms?

You could probably do this. Here's what we know, search  Server can crawl
farms besides itself, so we know that part will work. A single  Search
Server can crawl both test  and production. To get search results that
are only from a specific site  collection, you should be able to use a
search scope to accomplish that.
