Index Server Directory Scanning

Index Server Directory Scanning

If you are utilizing Internet Information Server (IIS) 4 and Microsoft Index Server, be careful which directories you set up to be traversed by Index Server. You likely do not want to search subdirectories that may have code modules or other information that is not relevant to the user searching the Web site. You can go into Index Server through the Web administration, usually found at http://{server}/iisadmin/isadmin/admin.htm and see directory setup and statistics on your indices. Also, each query is controlled by an IDQ file (usually in the /_vti_bin/ directory) which specifies the scope of the search (the ciscope variable).
