Making Index Server work with FrontPage Search

The FP search bot was setting the catalog directory (where everything is
indexed) to my default catalog directory, which did not contain the discussion group directory that I wanted to search.

Here's what I had to do to maintain two catalogs (This explanation assumes some knowledge of Index Server. The web directory is the root directory for the web to be searched):

  1. Create a Catalog.wci directory in the web directory.
  2. Copy the srchadm directory in scripts to some other name and create a virtual directory for it. Modify all of the catalog references in the files to point to the web directory.
  3. Copy the samples\srchadm directory to the web directory and modify the admin directory references to point to the new scripts subdirectory.
  4. Add an entry in ...\CurrentControlSet\Control\contentindex\IsapiVirtualServerCatalog for this web and web directory
  5. Add (replace) the following lines in the idq file in the _vti_bin directory: CiCatalog=[the web directory] CiScope=[the relative directory to search within the web] CiFlags=SHALLOW
  6. Make sure you restart the server.
