How to install Windows Search on Server Core R2


  • I have a server core (200 R2 RC) as file server. Recently installed Win7 RC on some of the PC's and tried to add share locations to the Win7 Libraries. This is refused because the shared location needs to be indexed. Windows Search 4.0 should do the trick but that cannot be installed on R2 and there is no built-in feature available from oclist.
    Can a server core system be used for Windows 7 shared libraries or is this a dead end?
    (I know that making shares available offline works, but these shares are way too big to be cached locally).
