So the indexing of network attached drives is disabled by default on Macs now.

To enable spotlight indexing on a network drive:

mdutil /Volumes/name -i on

To disable the indexing of a connected network drive:

mdutil /Volumes/name -i off

To check the status of indexing on a connected network drive:

mdutil /Volumes/name –s

Also please make sure that you are running the above commands from the users that needs to have access to the shared drives.

Hope this helps!
