Does Moving Search Service Create New Index? RRS feed

Answers

  • Yes, it will create a new index since the old index will be on the old server in a specific sub directory and won't be copied when you move the search index role.

  • Thanks Paul. That confirms what I thought. I suspect that the WFE/Query will recognize this new location and it will be safe to delete the old index. Kelly
