    I have discovered that I can no longer search a mounted shared (AFP) Linux volume in the finder, or in spotlight. The volume is mounted properly and I can see files.

    I can perform the search, but the search returns nothing, even though I KNOW the file is there. For example, if I mount the volume, open it and search for music.mp3 (I need to pick the volume name in the finder since it defaults to "This Mac") which I know is in the folder, it doesn't find it. No matter WHAT I search for it finds nothing.

    I called Apple on this and they are researching the issue.

    This happens on both our Macs.

    Can anyone test in a similar situation?

    I had no issues with 10.5.5.

    Same Issue

    Seems to work with anything prior to 10.5.6 with a 10.4.11 server. Seems to work with a 10.5.6 Server. Anyone have the same?

    Same thing here. With 10.5.5 you're able to search/find stuff on afp connected servervolumes, now with 10.5.6 it's impossible. It gives you 0 items as soon as you start typing something in.

    I do hope there will be a fix for this soon....
    Or does anyone have a small find app that enables you to find stuff on a afp connected server volume??

    On 10.5.8 and Finder will not search any mounted drives

    :eek:Was this fixed sometime between 10.5.6 and 10.5.8 or did 10.6 help? We have lost all ability to search our mounted SMB (NTFS) volumes all of a sudden. We did install Markz PageZephyr so that we could crawl the contents of .indd files and have tried re-indexing, but are stumped. Any ideas? Thanks!
