In this section I am gonna tell you how to configure index server. Basically index server is required when configuring SSP (Shared Service Provider) in SharePoint. So we need to have index server configured before configuring SSP. Following are the series of steps to configure index server.
  1. Open Central Administration; navigate to Operations--> Topology and Services--> Servers in Farm.
  2. Click server on which you want to run indexer service.
  3.  Click on Office SharePoint Server Search listed in the service list.
  4.  Fill in the details and in Web Front End And Crawling section select Use a dedicated web front end computer for crawling, select server name from dropdown list, and press OK.

Now you have done with configuring index server, it's time to start it. Click on the 'start' link in the action column in front of Office SharePoint Server Search.
  1. Configure Office SharePoint Server Search Service Settings on server creativitybox’ form will be opened, fill in required fields and press Start.

That's all you need to do to configure index server. Have a nice day :).
