Question regarding content search in EPDM

Question asked by Wayne Lehman on Sep 6, 2013
Latest reply on Sep 7, 2013 by Wayne Lehman

We have recently started to populate our EPDM 2013 SP4 vault with live data, but I seem to be having problems with the search function within EPDM.

 

When I search the vault on a client for a particular string - say "Quality*" - which I know is included in the txt of at least one Word 2010 .docx file, I get zero results. If I search for file names or folders, the search is successful - it is just content search that does not seem to work.

 

Am I correct in assuming that the default Microsoft Indexing Service should be able to search Microsoft Office files for file content? I have checked our indexing on the EPDM server and everything appears to configured correctly.

 

We also are putting in a lot of .pdf files into the vault. How do we go about adding a iFilter for Adobe so that we can search content of .pdfs?

 

Any help gratefully received.
