Desktop Search and Search Server Express RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello, I have some questions regarding Desktop Search (WDS) and Search Server Express 2010 (SSX). I've installed SSX and then crawled a file share. I have WDS installed on a client machine. My questions are:
    1. How can I get WDS to use that SSX index, so clients are not indexing the servers?
    2. I also have a Search page setup in the SSX, and have added it as a Primary Intranet Search Location in the GPO. However, when clients type in a search in the WDS and select Intranet, it only brings them to the Intranet search site with the search text box filled with the search string, waiting for the client to press a button. Shouldn't it automatically give me results right away without having to press another button? Is this possible?
    3. If I install Windows Search on a Win2008 server, and tell it to index some folders, how can I setup the client WDS to search those folders without indexing them on the client machine?
    Any help or suggestions are appreciated. Thanks a lot!
