    Hi everyone,

    I'm trying to index my network SMB drives using the following commands

    Code:
    mdutil /Volumes/Share -i on
    however it doesn't seem to work and only returns me the following :

    Code:
    /Volumes/Share:
        Indexing disabled.
    
    Anyone running into a similar issue? I was able to do this on 10.11

    Pretty sure drives have to be in HFS+ format and have full system rights enabled for Spotlight to work.
