FAST Search Server 2010
 

Applies to: FAST Search Server 2010

Topic Last Modified: 2011-04-11

Through the FAST Search Content Search Service Application, the indexing connectors integrated in 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 an overview of the content sources that require additional configuration in order to be able to crawl that content type. The additional configuration procedures needed to crawl these content types are explained in the topics that are linked to at the end of each overview section.
