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

  • sts2s

  • sts3

  • sts3s

  • sts4

  • sts4s

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.

The following sections provide overviews for the Exchange and Lotus Notes connectors and the Indexing Connector for Documentum. The procedures for installing each of these connectors are linked to at the end of each overview section.

The Exchange connector enables SharePoint Server 2010 to crawl Microsoft Exchange Server data. The Exchange connector comes installed as part of the default SharePoint Server 2010 installation and requires only configuration to use. For more information about how to configure the Exchange connector, see Configure and use the Exchange connector (SharePoint Server 2010).

The Lotus Notes connector enables SharePoint Server 2010 to crawl Lotus Notes Domino Server data. The Lotus Notes connector comes installed as part of the default SharePoint Server 2010 installation and requires only configuration to use. For more information about how to configure the Lotus Notes connector, see Configure and use the Lotus Notes connector (SharePoint Server 2010).

The Indexing Connector for Documentum enables SharePoint Server 2010 to index content that is stored in the EMC Documentum system. The following article describes how to install and configure the Indexing Connector for Documentum: Configure and use the Documentum connector (SharePoint Server 2010).
