Scheduled vs Synchronous Indexing

Hi all,


I have a case open already about this but I'd welcome some user feedback also on this.

Basically, at the moment we have both options applied in our environment. I have read that this can cause errors to occur.

Currently, we have the "Index contents and documents for searches" scheduled to run once a week.

But because we also have the Synchronous Indexing option ticked on each app server, every 3 months or so we have to run the recreate index commands.

What I would like to find out is the pros/cons of using 1 option over the other.

If we were to disable 1 of the options what would be the expected results? Would there be any negative impact?

It may be useful to know that we have had the scheduled job option applied for a long time. Thanks.
