FAST Search deployement across untrusted domains RRS feed

  • Question

  • We need to install FAST search 2010 in (Forest A) and the SQL server in (Forest B), there is no trust between the 2 forests. How can I use SQL authentication for the configuration.

    We used SQL authentication in the sharepoint farm, but we cannot run the FAST configuration wizard using the SA account.

  • I haven't tried this myself, but if you edit the connection string for the FASTAdmin database in your deployment.xml configuration it might work.

    Before installing create a custom deployment configuration file. For example start with the one in C:\FASTSearch\etc\deployment.sample.single.xml.

    Create a connection string like the one below, adding your username and password to the connection string.


    Then during the FAST setup wizard, use your custom configuration.

    A list of jdbc connection string parameters can be found at:

    Let me know how this goes.
