Use this procedure to schedule crawls for the FAST Search Lotus Notes content connector. To schedule crawls, use the Windows Task Scheduler.

The FAST Search Lotus Notes connector should have a task for both the content connector as well as the user directory connector.

warningWarning
Do not schedule the FAST Search Lotus Notes content connector and FAST Search Lotus Notes user directory connector to start crawling at the same time. The same ID file is used to connect to Domino, and if both connectors start at the same time, errors could occur. The scheduled crawls may crawl at the same time, as long as the scheduled start time of the crawl is not the same.
