Sharepoint 2010 search cannot work at all

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 17, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
HI I have just installed Sharepoint 2010 trial version. I installed with a 2 server setup - sharepoint and SQL was on separate Virtual machines. Previously the search could work. Crawl logs showed all success. Until yesterday I began to fiddle around with PDF iFilter and configuring it to make sure PDF could be searched. I consulted the following websites(http://sptwentyten.wordpress.com/2009/12/30/install-foxit-pdf-ifilter-on-sharepoint-2010-beta/ http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2293357 http://www.codeproject.com/KB/sharepoint/PDFiFIlterSharePoint2010.aspx) but faced problem along the way such as - issuing IISreset command (In the end I had to use services to stop/start IIS Admin Service), -restarting Sharepoint Search Server 14 (net stop osearch14, net start osearch14). (In the end only the local administrator account could perform this) - I also had other problems/typo so everytime I tried, I did a full crawl. Then I noticed my search could not WORK AT ALL after fiddling with Sharepoint along the way. It showed all failures in the crawl log. With 103 errors related to 'The object was not found'. It will show my top level sites even, ie http://domainname - but actually when i clicked on it, I could access. IN the event viewer, it showed Event ID 14 error. Task Category 'Gatherer', Event ID 14, Source is from 'Sharepoint Search Server'. details

How People Search does work in SharePoint 2010?


I want to ask you couple questions:

1. If have 4 Web Applications. To be able to perform "People Search" do i need in Fast Query Service Applicaition to configure "SPS3://" for each Web Application?

By the way, yesterday my People Search finally succeed. I just configured in Fast Query Service Applicaition the following: http://mySite and sps3://mySite and didn't configured nothing else. Why i almost didn't see sites/blogs/articles with suggestion instead of http://serverName and sps3://serverName to put http://mySite and sps3://mySite?

2. Why in each site, explaining about People Search Configuration, i see, only examples like: http://serverName and sps3://serverName? When i put http://serverName i get as wrote above error: "The object was not found. (0x80041201)". You can try to do it by yourself and i think

SharePoint 2010 Search Service Application: "All Content" scope contains 0 items?

I've encountered a nasty bug in our setup. Our Search Service Application manages to crawl all content just fine. However, the scopes don't work. We've got a total of 570 items currently in our crawl database. 350 of these are of class 'People', and appear in the 'People' scope. The remaining 220 items should appear in 'All Content' as part of the intra (sites, documents etc), however the 'All Content' scope reports 0 items. I've tried the following: -Creating custom scopes (still 0 items) -Recreating the Search Service Application twice -Tried different accounts as the content access account. -Ensuring that the content access accounts do have 'full read policy' -Checked the crawl log for successful content (such as sites and documents). However, despite my efforts I still get 0 items for 'All Content'.  Has anyone else encountered this problem, or do you have any recommendation for us? Currently I don't see any other option than to reinstall everything.

SharePoint Server 2010 Search - not returning results but crawling without errors

I have created a Search Service Application on a SharePoint Server 2010 (RTM) Farm and used the default Content Source. I started a Full Crawl and it suceeded with no errors etc. I ran it a few times and no issues. But if I go to the Intranet Portal Web Appliaction and do a search for a document that would have been crawled it does not show up in search results...nothing does. I am not getting any errors in Event Log or ULS Logs relevant to Search. How can I troubleshoot this problem further?SharePoint Solution Architect, Perth Australia - Microsoft Virtual Technology Specialist - MCTS WSS Dev, WSS Adm, MOSS Dev, MOSS Adm - http://wss.made4the.net/ - Founder of http://www.sharepointdevwiki.com/

problem rename sharepoint 2010 search service application admin database

Hi all, i have a problem that hopefully someone has an answer to.  i am not too familiar with sharepoint so please excuse my ignorance. we have sharepoint 2010 on a windows 2008r2 server.  everything seems to work fine.  but as you know, the default database names are horrendous.  i have managed to rename all of them, except for the "search service application" admin database. the default is: Search_Service_Application_DB_<guid> the other 2 databases (crawl and property) were renamed without a problem. we are following the article from technet on how to rename the search service admin db (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-nz/library/ff851878%28en-us%29.aspx).  it says to enter the following command: $searchapp | Set-SPEnterpriseSearchServiceApplication -DatabaseName "new database name" -DatabaseServer "dbserver" however, i get an error about identity being null.  no big deal, i add the -Identity switch and the name of my search service application.  but the real problem comes the error it throws:   Set-SPEnterpriseSearchServiceApplication : The requested database move was aborted as the associated search application is not paused. At line:1 char:54 + $searchapp | Set-SPEnterpriseSearchServiceApplication <<<<  -Identity "Search Service Application" -DatabaseName "ShareP

Problem With SharePoint Designer 2010 and the Search.asmx Web Service

I've created a web service datasource on a 2010 site using SharePoint Designer. When I try to make use of the datasource on a page I get the "The server returned a non-specific error when trying to get data from the data source..." message. The datasource connects to _vti_bin/search.asmx. I am using the QueryServiceSoap port and operation QueryX. I've tried various queryXml strings, including site & people searches using both SQL and keyword syntax. eg <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?><QueryPacket xmlns="urn:Microsoft.Search.Query" Revision="1000"><Query domain="QDomain"> <SupportedFormats><Format>urn:Microsoft.Search.Response.Document.Document</Format></SupportedFormats> <Context>   <QueryText language="en-US" type="MSSQLFT"><![CDATA[ SELECT Size, Rank, Path, Title, Description, Write, Filename, Description, Author FROM scope() WHERE CONTAINS ('"Lorum"') AND  ( ("SCOPE" = 'All Sites') )   ORDER BY "Rank" DESC ]]></QueryText> </Context> <Range><StartAt>1</StartAt><Count>20</Count></Range> <EnableStemming>false</EnableStemming> <TrimDuplicates>true</TrimDuplicates> <IgnoreAllNoiseQuery>true&l
