Full Text Search Has Changed

With the new ProjectWise SS4 Update we have some changes that need to be considered when planning on Full Text Indexing.  First off is the fact that the Microsoft Index Server is not supported on Windows 2012 Server.  This has been our indexing engine since full text searching was introduced in ProjectWise 2004.  The update now supports both the older Microsoft Index Server on Windows Server 2008 and the new Microsoft Windows Search Server which if you are going to Windows Server 2012 is the only way to go.  The new Windows Search Server does require a SQL server and for medium to large users this may need to be a separate SQL server to meet the expected load. Performance and scalability are much better with the Windows Search Server.
