I have SSE 2010 installed and functioning. Seven "shared" scopes have been defined and show as having the expected number of items. In my departmental web apps I have created Advanced Search and results pages so the users do not have
to leave their own web app to do searches across those defined scopes. Unfortunately the only way I found to make those scopes available in their Advanced Search web part was to "copy" the shared scopes (they display in an "unused scopes" group with
no options for use). The copy allows me to specify that the scope should appear in the Advanced Search web part and/or in the search box dropdown. Is there anyway to use those "unused" shared scopes without creating a complete copy
set of them in every site collection? Thanks for any assistance you can provide!
