    Lion will not search network folders
    Since upgrading to Lion, I am unable to search the network drives. Using Finder, I select the network folder I want to search, type the keyword in the spotlight bar, and immediately, the search switches back to This Mac. When I select the network folder again, the keyword remains in Spotlight but will not provide results.

    Probably a user issue but I'm stumped.

    Specs:
    iMac 2010 27" QuadI7 OSX10.11, iMac 2008 OSX10.11, MBP Late2011OSX10.11 , iPad Air, iPhone 3GS
    I just tried it here and it seemed to work. Are these network drives other computers or NAS? If computers, Windows or OSX?
