Multiple documents uploaded to a document library configured with minor versions and enforced check-out are draft and checked out

When uploading a large number of documents to a document library in a migration scenario it may be a good idea to ensure that versioning and enforced check-out is disabled on the destination document library otherwise all documents will be checked-out to the account uploading the documents and files will have a minor version (draft). You can enable versioning and enforced check-out once all files are uploaded.

No Adobe PDF documents are returned in the search results when you search a Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 Web site

This is for a WSS 3.0 implementation only. Detailed instructions can be found at

If the WSS 3.0 site already has PDF documents before you installed the Adobe iFilter on the server, you will have to modify a property of the existing PDF documents on the server so that WSS can subsequently crawl it.
