Exchange Full-text Index and searching PDF files RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello everyone!

    I have Full-Text indexing set up on our Exchange 2003 server and I want to enable to 
    ability to index PDF files. I have the directions I got out of Exchange 2003 
    24 Seven by Jim McBee. I am able to open up the Search MMC console, but when 
    I try to go to the properties for the Exchange index the console disconnects 
    from the server and I get the following error: 

    "Unable to connect to host <servername>. the application called an interface that was marshalled for a different thread" 

    Some articles point to a problem with Ixsso.dll registration, tried unregister/register and no solution.

    So, how to index pdf files using Full Text Indexing of Exchange 2003?

    Thank you!

  • Hi

    Please have a look on the KB article, HOW TO: Configure Full-Text Indexing on Mailbox Stores in Exchange 2003

    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/822932 

    But In my mind, The index does not includes text of PDF Attachment.

    Hope it helps

    Cheers

  • Hello Zi Feng, already followed that article, with no results at all.

    The problem happens with srchadm.msc from MSSearch folder, the 'Search' Snap-In. It is not connecting with the Exchange Full-Text Index which is already working, so I can't add PDF content to it as recommended on the IFilters from Foxit and Adobe.

    The index name is correct, event log is fine, just the connection won't happen with that error:

    ""Unable to connect to host <servername>. the application called an interface that was marshalled for a different thread"

    Thank you!
