Unable to crawl on AAM url

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 01, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

Hi guys,

On both our dev and prod farm, I am unable to crawl content from a URL http://asite.mydomain.net . It works only on the machine name http://myserver:80

The host header of myserver:80 is asite.mydomain.net.

I check the access to thoses sites using the crawler account, and everything is allright.

I had the same topology in a SharePoint 2007 farm, and I was able to crawl content from asite.mydomain.net or myserver:80

What's wrong ???

Any idea ?

Unable to crawl External Website for indexing


I have been trying to add an external site to crawl on our SharePoint 2010 site for a few days now and keep recieving the same error with nothing getting crawled.  Error in Crawl Logs says...

"Item not crawled due to one of the following reasons: Preventive crawl rule; Specified content source hops/depth exceeded; URL has query string parameter; Required protocol handler not found; Preventive robots directive."

To set it up I went to CENTRAL ADMIN > SEARCH SERVICE APPLICATION > CONTENT SOURCES and added the URL of the site I wanted to crawl.  This is actually the first time I have set something like this up so not even sure I am doing it correctly.

I thank you in advance for any help with this problem!

Also the external site does not have any permissions set up.  Let me know if you need anymore info.  Thanks again!

Unable to select any stored procedure while creating TableAdapters in wizard


I'm using VS 2008 and SQL 2008.

I have created the tables and the stored procedures in SQL 2008.

In VS 2008, I created DataSet1.xsd in App_Code and created the connectionString in web.config file.

Then when I go into the DataSet1.xsd and try to add a TableAdapter, strange things happened.

First I chose the data connection, then selected "Use existing stored procedure", then there was nothing listed in the dropdownlists (in Select, Insert, Update, or Delete). 

I'm sure the connectionString is correct because if I choose "Use SQL statement" and type in a "select * from mytable1", the TableAdapter can be created without any problem.

Any suggestions?

Unable to move Wiki pages with Bracketed ([[, ]]) Links


I'm using Microsoft Office Sharepoint Server 2007 (pre-SP1) to host a Wiki, and it's been a learning process as I've been going along.  In this process, I keep finding better places to keep Wiki Pages and Wiki Libraries, so I move things around to find the best fit.  I've run into a strange problem while moving my collection of ~100 Wiki pages, and I'm curious to see if others have it to.  The problem is, I cannot move or copy Wiki Pages that contain links to other Wiki pages using the bracket method (of writing a link as [[other page]]).

Here's how I reach the problem:

-Create 2 Wiki Pages Libraries,  I called mine Wiki PagesA and Wiki PagesB
-I go into my Wiki PagesA library and create a new Wiki page.
-I call it "linktohome" and enter only a single line in the body, "[[home]]"
-I can open it up and it works just fine and the link redirects me to the Home page in the local Wiki PagesA library so it's all good.
-Next in my main Site Collection that's hosting these libraries, I'll pull down Site Actions and go into Manage Content and Structure.
-I can browse into Wiki PagesA and the linktohome document appears
-But, when I try to copy (or move) linktohome to Wiki PagesB library I get an error that says:

Unable to open pdf from document library MOSS 2007


When I click on a pdf document uploaded in a document library it comes up with a blank page. 

I guess it's trying to open pdf on the browser. I turned off "Display PDF in browser " option in Adobe Preferences, but it doesn't help, same issue.

I tried other browsers too, it's the same issue.

I am able to open all other pdf files local to my machine fine.

I am using IE 8 on my machine (Windows 7) and the Sharepoint server is MOSS 2007.

I can't start crawl task. The log says that "Deleted by the gatherer (The start address or content source that contained this item was deleted and hence this item was deleted.)" But I did not change the path of content sources and When I trie to start crawling job it says "Crawling might be paused because a backup or an index move operation is in progress. Are you sure you want to resume this crawl?"

What is index move operation? What should I do? I'll really appreciate the solution greatly. Thanks in advance.
