MOSS moving Default search index file location to a UNC path RRS feed

  • Question

  •  I have a farm installation of SharePoint 2007 and I'm getting search up and running. The Default index file location is currently set to C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office Servers\12.0\Data\Office Server\Applications.

    I'm trying to get stsadm.exe -o editssp to change the default file location to \\server\sharename.

    I've tried several different versions, all failed. eg:

    C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\12\BIN>stsa
    dm -o osearch -defaultindexlocation \\server\sharename

    I'm getting
    defaultindexlocation: The value "\\server\sharename" is not valid
    I've verified that \\server\sharename is shared to all

    Thanks in advance for guidance.
