    • Generating an Index for Windows Search

      I a noob when it comes to server side file sharing but I have just set up OMV to use as a file store and backup for files at 5 person small business.

      Now I am lead to believe you can create a index of the files and the data contained within and share that with the windows computers on the network. Is this possible on OMV? I would like to do this as we have 20k of word documents that is often searched though by 3 different users and I would like to avoid them having to index the files on the sever.
    • This is not even implemented yet in Samba:

      If you want to have indexing, you have to do it locally.

      Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former.
