When you try to schedule a build of a Site Server Search catalog from a remote computer running Internet Explorer 5.0 or later, the scheduling fails with the following error message:

The File Exists

This occurs when you try to check the Full or Incremental check boxes.


The Scheduler that is being used in this case is the one installed with Internet Explorer 5.0. In Internet Explorer 5.0 (and Windows 2000) the Scheduler has been changed and now requires a different command to create a job remotely.


The only way to work around this limitation is to uninstall Internet Explorer 5.0 and use Internet Explorer 4.0 on the client computer. This is not recommended or supported.
