Only one Content Access Account RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm just getting started with FAST Search.  I want to index a network share in addition to SharePoint content.

    I only see one place to specify an account that will be used to crawl content (the Default Content Access account).

    Is it not possible to have different accounts for different content sources in FAST?

  • Hello Stoonad,

    You can add a crawl rule in order to provide different credentials for a particular source. Check out http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff473168.aspx for documentation on how to add a crawl rule.
