  • 2008 R2 Indexing File Server Issues


    Iím new to server 2008 but have just built a new file server using 2008 R2. However anyone using Win 7 is having problems opening files - they take a very long time to open and some even eventually open in read-only format. XP users seem unaffected. The problem I'm sure is related to indexing but would appreciate some help and advice. I did assume that indexing was turned on in 2008 R2 but have since found that you need to install it from the roles section - not sure whether it needs a restart or not. I still cannot load my shared folder into my docs library as it says the share is not indexed. Is it possible to see the state of the indexing process anywhere?

    Thanks, John
