do I need to install Web Research Network Add-on?
Web Research Network Add-on is no
system service but an
administration console (Web Research Server Manager), which
you use to administer server collections on remote MS SQL

Web Research Network Add-on software on the same machine where SQL
Server is running.
You can install it on any network workstation,
preferable equipped with Windows 2000 or XP.
can I copy data from local archives to server archives?
You can open local archives (*.csa) und Server Archives at
the same time in Web Research und copy documents / folders
using drag & drop operations between the two archives.
To copy all data from a local to a server collections,
we recommend the tool WRCopy.exe, that is installed
with the add-on. It runs in a separate
process, and you can continue to work with ContentSaver in
Another advantage is that this tool does not create
duplicates in the case that you have to interrupt the copy
about the speed?
Speed basically depends on the speed of the workstation
where MS SQL Server is installed, network bandwidth, and the
level of shared use.
Generally, you will notice that documents from server
archives are displayed faster.
Searching is faster as well. Copying or moving data between
a server archive is significantly slower because there are
many queries across the network to avoid duplicates.
Additionally, Web Research can use full-text index features
of MS SQL Server, which leads to very fast search results.
big can server archives become?
The free SQL Server 2005 Express Edition can save up to 4GB
per database. For greater data volumes, you
need the licensed Microsoft SQL Server.
