Fileshare Crawl - Security qestion? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi Experts,

    Trying to crawl a shared folder. The "Default content access account" dosent have access to the network folder.

    Created a Crawl URL and used "Specify a different content access account". Gave userName and Password, saved. Tried to crawl but got Access denied in the log.

    Trying to crawl all the files and subfolders under a Network shared path. For eg., my crawl rule is  file://home/Digital_Assets/PPCA/*

    Chaged the "Default content access account" itself to an account which has access to this network path and removed the crawl rule. Was able to crawl the files. However, search results appear in the site collection, only if I login with the latter account. Login with a differnt user names gives me no result.

    Any clues? Anything obvious that I'm missing?

    Much Thanks!!
