SharePoint Search Admin is a windows form based tool to manage Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 and Microsoft Search Server 2008 search functions. It can manage content sources, schedules, and crawl status. Please note that source code is included in release packages.
(Formerly named MOSS Search Admin)
Some additional functions which default SharePoint Server interface cannot provide:
Add/Schedule Custom Content Source
Add multiple Lotus Notes Content Source by one click
Add multiple Lotus Notes DB to single Content Source(Notes/Custom)
A new version for SharePoint Server 2010 is being developed, stay tuned.
For MS internal questions, please contact: Jie Li (SHAREPOINT)@MSFT.
Others please post your questions on discussions.
A small set of features will be added in the coming days. For example, detect start addresses that are already in the content source.
The whole UI will be complete rewritten in the next major release to provide a full function search management UI.
