    Hi all,

    We have a File server (win 2016 st). We configured one of the folders to be indexed and when i do a search on the File server it shows results of content.

    The problem starts when we try so do a search from a user’s computer in the domain. The folder is mapped on the user computer and when we search there are no results in content only in files and folders name.

    I have tried googling with no luck. I hope someone here could help me.

    Thanks in advance,
