VX Search Server Searching Network Shares
By default, the VX Search service is configured to run under the local system account, which is good to search files in local disks and directories.

Now, the VX Search service will run under the specified user account and will have exactly the same permissions as the specified user account when accessing network shares and NAS storage devices.
