Windows Search on Windows 7 and Windows 2008

October 26, 2009

I discovered this evening that my nice new Windows 7 installation would not search for files on our servers network shares. The problem appeared to be that for some reason the Windows Search Service on our Small Business Server 2008 machine needed to be manually installed.

Fortunately Olav Tollefsen provides instructions here on just how to do that.

Given the importance of search, I don’t know why this role isn’t installed on Small Business Server installations out of the box.
