We have Imacs with OS 10.7.3 and 10.8.2 joined to a windows domain but when they try to search the windows file server network shares they do not find anything. I have tried going to spotlight preferences / privacy and adding the network share then removing it hoping it would rebuild the search index but no luck. Is there any setting on the windows server 2008 r2 I should be looking at or on the macs that I can change? We also have Macs running OS X 10.6.8 and they do not have the same problem.


Thanks in advance,



iMac (27-inch Mid 2011), OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)
