Index status flag not persistent
Authored by: lullabud on May 06, '05 03:24:13PM
Well, it appears to me as though you'd have to enable indexing each time you mount a network share. Connecting to an SMB share which has an index on it already then checking the indexing status with sudo mdutil -s /Volumes/sharename/ says that indexing is disabled. If I enable it, unmount the share and remount it the flag will be reset, and I need to turn indexing on again. Using the spotlight search gui doesn't search the network drive's index, but using mdfind -onlyin /Volumes/networkshare/ does. I'd sure like to see a howto on this.
