Connector Framework Server

Topics in this Section

Connector Framework Server (CFS) processes the information that is retrieved by connectors, and then indexes the information into IDOL Server.
A single CFS can process information from any number of connectors. For example, a CFS might process files retrieved by a File System Connector, web pages retrieved by a HTTP connector, and e-mail messages retrieved by an Exchange Connector.
To use the File System Connector to index documents into IDOL, you must have a Connector Framework Server. When you install the File System Connector, you can choose to install a CFS or point the connector to an existing CFS.
For information about how to configure and use Connector Framework Server, refer to the Connector Framework Server Administration Guide.
