Enable Spotlight ACLs on Share Points for OS X Server

If you create a share point on OS X Server (10.5 or 10.6) and it doesn’t have the magic Spotlight ACL, then Spotlight may not be able to index the content.
To enable, or re-enable it, enter the following in the Terminal:

sudo chmod -R +ai "user:_spotlight allow read,readattr,list,search,file_inherit,directory_inherit" /path/to/folder
