This example shows how to setup a DataFinder Server to index the cleansed and extended files of the Data Preprocessor created in earlier tutorials.

Specify the Processed Data folder of the Data Preprocessor as a search area for the new DataFinder Server. DataFinder Server will either scan search areas at regular intervals for new files or receive notifications from the file system about new files. Once these files have been successfully indexed, they can be used as data source for searching specific files or for data analytics.

The same DataFinde Server also triggers the immediate processing of new files by the Analysis Server.

To setup the DataFinder Server, complete the following steps in the wizard:

1. Open TDM Server Manager in your web browser and login using your credentials.



2. Select New>>DataFinder to start the configuration wizard.



3. Enter ProcessedDataIndex as the Name of the new DataFinder server, and click Next.



4. Enter the Name of the search area.

5. Click the Choose a Folder symbol and activate the TDM Server tab.

6. Open the Choose a server from list… drop down box, and select the ConvertExampleData Data Preprocessor.



7. Select Processed data (Raw_Data).



8. Click OK.

9. Click Next to continue the configuration wizard.

10. Click Next to skip this step.

11. Select the ADVANCED license.



12. Click Finish to complete the initial configuration of the DataFinder.

13. Select the newly created DataFinder in the list, and click Start to start indexing the data.
