Step 2. Add a new CIFS Content Source
To specify exactly what shared folder to crawl, we will need to create a new "Content Source".
To create a new content source:
- From the Content Source , click Add Source.
- Click CIFS Connector.
Step 3: Initiate a Full Crawl
Now that the content source is set up, the crawl can be initiated.
- Click on the crawl type option to set it as Full (is set as Incremental by default and the first time it'll work like a full crawl.
After the first crawl, set it to Incremental to crawl for any changes done in the repository).
- Click Start.
Step 4: Initiate an Incremental Crawl
If you only want to process content updates from the CIFS (documents which are added, modified, or removed), then click on Incremental instead of Full.
The CIFS connector will automatically identify only changes which have occurred since the last crawl.
If this is the first time that the connector has crawled, the action of the "Incremental" button depends on the exact method of change discovery.
It may perform the same action as a Full crawl crawling everything, or it may not crawl anything.
Thereafter, the Incremental button will only crawl updates.
