Search- iFilters doesn't index the pdf documents

Post by merig » Fri Mar 08, 2013 10:01 am

Hello,

Even though we can text search Word documents, we still cannot text search PDFs after installing iFilter per the instructions provided.

And even for the Word documents, while it returns a result, it still says no abstract available for the pdf documents when clicking the show button.

Please help.

Hello,

After adding iFilters, doing a re-scan will NOT work. You must rebuild the index server catalog. If you don't, you may not be able to find the details of some documents.

You can use the following documentation for this:
