    Unanswered: Adobe iFilter 5 & SQL Server 2000 full text indexing of PDFs?

    hi all! i'm new and hoping you might help me - have searched E V E R Y W H E R E for this answer!!

    --my ASP program is running on IIS box (call it "Lucy")

    --my ASP program connects to SQL Server 2000 db on another box (call it "Linus") consisting of .doc, .xls, .PDF and the like

    --all's well EXCEPT when PDFs are returned! sometimes browser gives blank screen instead of PDF <?> i figure iFilter will "cure" this.

    --question:
    WHICH SERVER should iFilter be installed on? Lucy (where IIS is running & ASP program is) or Linus (where SQL Server does its full text indexing)?

    thanks in advance for any & all help!!

    You will have to install IFilter on the box that runs index server. I am not sure why you should be worried about SQL server when you searching documents from a folder.

    Are ur documents stored in a database?

    sorry, YES docs are stored directly in the SQL db. iFilter says to install it "where the index server is" -- but i don't know if that means the *** IIS Index Server*** or the ***SQL Server**** which is doing the full text indexing. <??>
