Sharepoint 2010 Fast Search - Searching Document set

We have a sharepoint 2010 Fast server. We are planning to use document sets to store documents with common metadata.(Previously were using zips in moss 2007). Now, the requirement is we need to return only  document sets even if the search results contain multiple documents within that document set. ie, if we searched for a keyword that was specific to a document within the document set, the search results should return the document set and not the individual documents. Please help!!! Thanks in advance

Fast Search 4 Sharepoint 2010 Business Data Connectivity (BDC) - IEntity Could not be found


Hi, I am using Fast for Sharepoint and I have created a simple Employee database in SQL server 2008 and I am trying to crawl this database.

Using Sharepoint designer, I have created an external repository and I have configured it to look at my test database. After trying to crawl this database - I get two successfyul documents crawled - which are just junk documents. And 5 errors.  The errors say:

Error while crawling LOB contents. ( IEntity could not be found using criteria 'Id=2502'. )

I also noticed that if I was to disable "Defaul Action" from the BDC configuration, then I get all successful crawled documents. However, if I click on any of those documents in the search page, then it brings me to "unkown page". 

This makes sense since Default Action (View Profiles) is disabled. Does anyone know how to avoid this error message above without having to disable Defaul Action check box? 

P.S. I can also see that the connection between SQL Server - BDC - SP is working since when I create a user profile page, I can see that data populate.

Cannot install Sharepoint Server 2010 "A previous installation has been detected with a license type

I'm trying to upgrade to Team Foundation Server 2010 and Project Server 2010. After getting TFS 2010 and Project Server 2007 to work with WSS 3.0, I started upgrade to Project Server 2010 which requires update to Sharepoint Server 2010 Enterprise. I installed pre-requisites and run "stsadm -o preupgradecheck" which passed everything. When I tried to run the installation I get Setup Warning "A previous installation has been detected with a license type that does not match the install in progress". I thought that my trial licence for Project Server 2007 stopped this so I completely uninstalled WSS 3.0 and restarted the server but the installation still stops with Upgrade window. Any ideas?

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.
