I can take ZERO credit for this, but I saw a very useful email today where Jan described how to create a FAST search scope using PowerShell.  So I’m just the messenger here but thought it was worth sharing: New-SPEnterpriseSearchQueryScope -SearchApplication “FAST Query Application” -Name “NewScope” -Description “This is my new scope” -DisplayInAdminUI 1 -ExtendedSearchFilter…
