Fast Search crawl attachment of Lists RRS feed

  • Question

  • In my lists, the fast search can't find the attachment.

    I check the crawl log and find a warning.

    warning information:

    The FAST Search backend reported warnings when processing the item. ( Document conversion failed: No filter available. Enable the Advanced Filter Pack for more filters.

    any idea to solve this?

    Best Regards

  • This appears to be self-evident based on the content of the warning:

  • As Paul says, enable the Advanced Filter Pack. Out of the box, office formats + pdf are indexed (and a few others). If your attachment is of another file format you need to enable a converter for it.

    You should make a habit of enabling this as part of your FAST for SharePoint installation, as I don't see why you wouldn't want this. The file format conversion of FS4SP is one of my main three reasons for upgrading to FS4SP.
