Indexed search for SMB share?

Hi, I have seen a previous topic on this subject and noticed JeroenTielen said you need to add the share to the index of the windows machine to have it indexed on that specific machine. 


but how can you do such a thing when i see in Microsoft forum:

Windows does not support indexing network shares. You may still search them, but this is done in real-time without indexing, so may be quite slow.


what can i do to make searching in Nutanix shares faster?

I think I was wrong on that topic. Sorry for that. 

Did some rearch on it, but when you map a network share (so that is has a driver letter) then open the properties of the drive and make sure the check box is set at the bottom (Allow files on this drive to have contents indexed in addition to file properties)


Never tested this though. So I could be wrong.
