Creating the FAST Search XML File

Author by Duncan Lindquist

The creation of your deployment.xml file for your FAST Search install is completely dependent upon the architecture of your environment.  Below I start with a sample xml that can be used for a 2 node FAST install.  I will highlight some key fields in the XML file below so that you can customize the XML file for your environment. For more information you can also check here. Below are areas where you will have to enter your environment specific server information
  • - The name you would like to use for your FAST Search instance
  • - Where you will enter all the information for the SQL server you would like to use with fast search
  • - Contains all the information for the host. The admin node will be specified with the tag.
  • - Displays the information for your search indexer.

Example XML File:

xmlns="" xmlns:xsi="" xsi:schemaLocation=" deployment.xsd">
