Which server should the search be on? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am setting up in production (finally) and there was one last thing I was not sure about. What server should the search be on? We are going to be using a CRM server that has some other apps on it for the WFE for WSS V3 and we have a dedicated srever with a boatload of space for our SQL box. I was hoping for a dedicatred WFE as well, but its not gonna happen.

    It seems to me that I might want to have the search on the SQL box but I may be confused.

    Any clues?

  • Hi,

    i think you must put search on the WFE and not on the SQL box as WSS 3.0, without a third server, needs search on the WFE.

    That's how i would configure it anyway.
