I hope somebody can help me to find registry settings to do the following things:
1. Enable indexing only for local harddrives, mails and personal home drive.
2. Do not allow the user to change the settings for elements which can be indexed.
FYI: We like to deploy WDS via script to the users and they should not be able to index e.g. team network drivers, etc.
Thanks for your help in advance.
Search for "desktopsearch.adm" @microsoft.com this is a group policy template, which perhaps can solve your problems.
I hope I could help you
Do not modify these keys manually. Instead, use group policies to manage search. See our admin guide for more information:
It's not possible to set local drives using the group policies for users because they haven't permission to choose local drives. And over the group policies does not exist any functions. We've got notebooks for our staff, they have a local drive D:\Data. They have only write-permissions there. They can't choose this drive, only administrators can. I need a script to share this automatically.
