Configuring
Search’s database,
failover server, and
indexing schedule
5. For authorization, I am going to keep the default Windows authentication; use the correct
authentication method for your server.
6. In the Failover Server section, I am going to leave that field blank, because I don’t have my
SQL server set up in a failover cluster, so I don’t have a failover server to specify here. If
you do have a failover server, enter the server name here.
In the Indexing Schedule section, you can see that there are several options. You can
specify the intervals in which SharePoint indexes changed data: hourly, between a time
range within an hour (so if you have other things timed to run at the top of the hour on
the network or the server, the index service can be set to run at a different point in the
hour every hour), or daily between a range of time. The default is hourly around 49
minutes after the hour, every hour.
7. You can, of course, change this setting, and you can reconigure it again whenever
needed. For my purposes, I need to have the index work more frequently, so I am going
to change it to every 15 minutes. Mind you, this is not a good setting for production
because the indexing service can use a lot of resources on the local server. But when
you’re learning SharePoint for the first time and you are experimenting with Search, it’s
best if you don’t have to wait an hour after you make a change for the change to show
up in the search results.
