Published: May 12, 2010

Summary: Learn about default indexing connector protocols and how to install connectors for Exchange, Lotus Notes, and Documentum.

Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010 can crawl content by using the following indexing connector protocols:

  • bcs

  • bcs2

  • file

  • https

  • http

  • notes

  • rb

  • rbs

  • sps

  • sps3

  • sps3s

  • spss

  • sts

  • sts2

For other types of content, a separate connector is required. SharePoint Server 2010 comes with two indexing connectors: Lotus Notes connector and Exchange connector. You can get other connectors from third-party vendors. If there is no connector for a protocol, you can create custom connectors by using Microsoft SharePoint Designer and Microsoft Visual Studio 2010.
