Q: How can I determine what file types are supported in a FS4SP instance?
A: There are a few ways:
You can run the following PowerShell script on the FS4SP backend for the exact list:
C:\fastsearch\bin> $fastsearch = [environment]::GetEnvironmentVariable("FASTSEARCH")
C:\fastsearch\bin> $rules = [xml] (Get-Content ($fastsearch + "etc\formatdetector\converter_rules.xml"))
.docx .dotx .dot .eml .html .mht .msg .nws .odp .ods .odt .one .pdf .pot .pps
.ppt .pptm .pptx .pub .rtf .txt .vdx .vsd .vss .vst .vtx .xlb .xlc .xls .xlsb
.xlsm .xlsx .xlt .xml .xps .zip
The Microsoft Filter Pack that is enabled OOTB with FS14 supports the formats described here:
In addition, there are Windows IFilters for formats such as XML, XPS, EML and MHT that are also supported OOTB.
Another way you can find out which file types are supported:
* Log into a FAST Server and open a cmd prompt
ifilter2html.exe -l | more
This will return a list of all supported file types ifilter2html can convert
