Hey Kees,

disclaimer: shameless self-plug!!

If you dont need content indexing you can use my indexer: 

Ive created it because I couldnt get FScrawler to work correctly.

You can add as many directories as you like in the config, it'll crawl 
it through one daemon service.

I'm planning on adding smb.conf parsing, so you dont even have to add 
these directories into the yaml file and just use samba as you would.

Let me know if you need some help setting it up or otherwise.

Have a nice day,
