Windows 7: Windows Search Service not searching music artists in Server 2008 R2

Windows Search Service not searching music artists in Server 2008 R2

...but possible in Windows 7

I had this problem for several months and I would like to know what's going on in this situation:
There is a Windows 7 machine and a Windows Server 2008 R2 machine in the same network. The Windows Search service is running on Server 2008 R2 and on Windows 7, therefore their music folders are indexed and added to the Music library. On Windows 7, I can search an artist in the start menu search and songs come up corresponding to the artist I searched for. However in Server 2008 R2 when I search an artist no results show unless that artist is in the file name of the song.
Does anyone know what Windows 7 Search Service is doing that Server 2008 R2 is not? Perhaps something else is missing in Server 2008? Ironically, if Windows 7 was sharing its indexed music folder and Server 2008 R2 added the shared folder to its music library, it will find artists I search for in Server 2008 R2.

Never mind! Both machines are working properly. I guess the indexing wasn't really complete on the Server 2008 R2 machine.
