Indexing Samba
Authored by: jdarnel2 on May 02, '05 02:49:09PM

Hi everyone,

I'm in the process of forcing spotlight to index a samba share using mdimport and the volume name ("mdimport /volumes/"). (I used some other switches, but you can read the man pages for those you'd like) I'm not sure if this is going to work, but it appears to be about half done. I'll post back with results.

Indexing Samba
Authored by: ldm on May 02, '05 05:32:52PM

I submitted a hint where I managed to get an AFP volume indexed with mdutil -i on . That would not work with samba though. It is partially working for the following reason: It does not index the _content_ of PDF files. It seems to look at file names and meta-data but does not look inside files the way spotlight does for every other volumes....
