Search Synonyms not working as expected

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 08, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint


In the Search Keywords section, I have setup a keyword with synonyms, but when I search the synonym words, the same results don't display.  For instance, my keyword is "test", synonyms are "tst" and "tset".  When I search for the synonyms, the test results do not display - am I missing something in the setup or search side?  Isn't that how it's supposed to work?


Thanks in advance!

Sharepoint 2007 Search Not Working


I am pulling my hair out guys. I have tried everything i could find from this site and all other sites but have not been successful. No matter what i do I cannot get the search to work. We are using SharePoint 2007 and the search had been fine but our security team performed some patches and now I’m stuck with a dead search feature.

Any help would be immensely appreciated.

Things I have tried but did not resolve the problem:

1. Check all accounts and passwords

2. Run the SharePoint Products and Technologies Configuration Wizard

3. Reboot server reset IIS

4. Try to rebuild the index but that also fails

5. Check the Content Access Account

Office Sharepoint Server Search not working but Windows Server Search is.

I am having an annoying Issue with the Sharepoint 2007 Enterprise search functionality. I cannot get the Search Centre to work, the out of the box webparts crash the page except the Searchbox when the others are closed. The event viewer shows up numerous Errors (Office Sharepoint Server - EventID 7080) returns with and the same when trying to add a search related web part (e.g. core.results, federated etc). EventID 6398 - Timer is a regular as is 7080. Details below.

A network-related or instance-specific error occurred while establishing a connection to SQL Server. The server was not found or was not accessible. Verify that the instance name is correct and that SQL Server is configured to allow remote connections. (provider: SQL Network Interfaces, error: 26 - Error Locating Server/Instance Specified).

Remote connections are connected, I am not 100% on the Instance name, (how would I go about checking this?)

Also I cannot access the link to SharedServices1 - Open Shared Services Admin site (not clickable), guess it's permissions but I seem to have full site permissions, I think I need SSP-Admin to make more edits to the Search, maybe this is related :s

Both Search Servers are runnig, I have tried everything I can think of to fix this and allow the Search Centre to work.

I am running Sharepoint 2007 on SQL Server 2008.

Textwrapping with buttons not working as expected

Guys and Gals, Got a bit of a problem with my application. I am trying to get the text and buttons in a groupbox to wrap when the page size changes (i.e. gets too small to fit it all on the page.) I have inserted the TextWrapping="Wrap" into the TextBlock line but it refuses to wrap. I have tried everything I can think of for this. Am I doing something wrong or is it impossible to do? If someone could point me in the correct direction it would be greatly appreciated. I don't want to use a scroll viewer either. <Window x:Class="Test.MainWindow" xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation" xmlns:x="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml" Title="MainWindow" Width="Auto"> <StackPanel> <TextBlock >Load Data Mappings From File</TextBlock> <TextBlock TextWrapping="Wrap"> This task will truncate all existing data Maps and re-import from an excel spread sheet.<LineBreak/> </TextBlock> <GroupBox Header="File to Load" Name="groupBox1" Padding="10" Margin="10"> <StackPanel> <StackPanel Orientation="Horizontal"> <TextBlock DockPanel.Dock="Left" VerticalAlignment="Center" Width=&qu

SharePoint Search not working on one site collection

I am running into some weird behavior with how SharePoint is crawling site/list data.  Let's say our main intranet site is http://www.intranet.com: Most of our older sites are setup with URLs like http://www.intranet.com/sites/sitename .  Crawling is working fine on these sites and I can execute a search and find all of the results I would expect.  At some point recently (before I joined this firm), they made a decision that all new sites would have the URL http://www.intranet.com/SiteDirectory/sitename .  Any sites which fall into this bucket are not being crawled, it would seem. If I check Central Adman>Shared Services>Search Administration, I can see that the first content source being crawled is http://www.intranet.com so I would imagine this crawl should pick up anything under /SiteDirectory/ but it is not.  I also checked the Crawl Settings on this page and it is set to "Crawl everything under the hostname for each start address".  Lastly, I see that there were only 21 errors in the last full crawl but none of these errors apply to a /SiteDirectory/ site. In short, what could be causing the crawl to apparently skip all of the sites within /SiteDirectory/ and how can this best be fixed?

Why is the Content by Query Web Part CommonViewFields attribute not working as expected?

I am using the Content by Query Web Part to show data from a Custom List.  I have already added to the XSL "ItemStyle" sheet so that I can pick the correct Item Style.  That has worked fine - I have been able to show whatever fields I would like and apply any CSS Styles I would like to them.  The issue I am having is in formatting the field correctly.  I have two different fields in my current example that need to be formatted: [1] I want to show an Image, but right now it shows the URL  [2] I want to show Rich Text, but right now it shows all the HTML Code as Plain Text.  I have looked at many articles online, and they all tell me to change the following in the WEBPART file from: <property name="CommonViewFields" type="string" /> to: <property name="CommonViewFields" type="string">Thumbnail, Image;Teaser, RichHTML;</property> What I am doing wrong?  The Web Part still runs, but it does not format the fields any differently.  Thanks for the help!

Change password for FBA users in claims setup not working as expected

Hi, I am trying to add a standard asp:changepassword control for external users. In the previous 2007 sharepoint environment this control was working "out of the box". I am pretty sure what is wrong as well,- but not sure how to fix it. A workaround that makes me able to change password is as follows: in the asp - control, I have added the option DisplayUserName="true" Then in the actual web-page, i can see that my username is: 0#.f|acaspnetsqlmembershipprovider|xxxxxx and not xxxxxx as i would excpect, as i use xxxxxx to log in. Editing the username to just xxxxxx makes the changing of password work, but this solution is not really nice to deploy to the normal end-users.. Any suggestion on how to make the username right? I've tried to set the username using the option UserName="<%=SPContext.Current.Web.CurrentUser.LoginName%>", but it does not seem to evaluate..  

Sharepoint Search and Secure Store Service not working

Hi There I am having issues with a few Sharepoint Services When I try to search for a document on any SharePoint site, I recieve an "Internal Server Error Exception". However when I checked the log files, I couldn't find any error messages matching with the given correlation ID. The search was working 2-3 weeks ago. Also 2 weeks ago, I started receiving warnings in the Health Analyzer saying “The Security token service is not available”. I am wondering if the security token service breaking down is related to the search issues, and if so what suggestions I could try to fix this issue. I am also unable to access the secure store service. In Central Administration->Application Management->Manage Service Applications, I try to click on the Secure Store Service, but there is no Proxy attached to the service, and I receive a message “No Secure Store Service Application Proxy ID was found”. When I check the Logfile, I receive these errors: 08/10/2010 11:11:32.94               w3wp.exe (0x18E4)                                      0x0ADC SharePoint Foundation     &nb

How to Perform Query Side Expansion of Synonyms in FAST Search for SharePoint

Hi, I have added Two Way Synonyms in FAST Search Keywords option in Site Settings. If I type the synonym alone, it works but if I type it with some other keyword, the search results in no hits whereas with the Same Keyword if i give the Main Keyword instead of its synonym, the search is successful. I understand that for this we need to do Query Side Expansion of Synonyms. I also tried to Set a Resubmit Flag to AddSynonymsAutomatically but this also failed. Can u pls suggest a way for this?

MS Filter pack for Zip files content search not working

I am facing a problem related to Zip files content search. Searching of content inside zip files doesn't return in search results. But searching for zip file name returns filename in search results. I look into Crawler log, all it says is:   Steps I followed to install MS Filter pack: Installed MS Filter Pack 1.0 (x64) http://support.microsoft.com/kb/946336/en-gb In Search Administration page added "zip" in File types Add Reg subkey under : "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office Server\12.0\Search\Setup\ContentIndexCommon\Filters\Extension\" for ".zip" with value ={20E823C2-62F3-4638-96BD-90F4F6784EBC} Stop and Start oSearch Run full crawl of content sources Can you please advise or have any tips you got to resolve this.

"max-template-document-size" change not working as expected

Hi There I have a 2 node MOSS 2007 deployment hosting 5 webapps. The one web app I am having a problem with is a customised solution from a 3rd party. The product users need to save sites as templates, to which they get an error saying that the template is too large. I have run the max-template-document-size stsadm command and increased the value from 5mb to 50mb but it seems the change is not taking effect. The error page says the limit is still 5mb. When I use stsadm getproperty it shows that the value has in fact increased. I have made sure that I am doing this on the correct webapp. The save as template operation works if I do not select the "save content" option. The sites have no content so the cannot be greater than 50mb. Am I missing something extremely obvious?

SharePoint 2010 Claims Based Authenticaton site working but search is broken

Hi, I have SP 2010 sucessfully installed on a Windows 2008 R2 server with SQL Server 2008 R2.  I created local machine accounts for the following: MACHINE\mssqlservice MACHINE\sp_admin MACHINE\sp_search MACHINE\sp_farms I have setup 2 sites with public facing internet access as well as local sites. I have CBA working properly on both sites from both public and private access. My problem is that when I go to search, I am constantly redirected to an error page. I have checked all SP services on the server and they are all running as MACHINE\mssqlservice That account has proper access to all sites as well as all DB's. My search is crawling and I get one error from a long named PDF file in my site, which is OK.   My questions is if my CBA is working fine and my search is crawling, why I am not getting a results page when I search from the sites:   Here is the error I get:   Error Internal server error exception:   Troubleshoot issues with Microsoft SharePoint Foundation.

!POSTBACK not working as expected

I have a site I am trying to set up where the form can be submitted via click of button but when refreshing the page, I do not want it to resend the message. i have found several sites that show using Session Variables and !Postback, but for some reason, when using this action I am still hitting the !Postback condition even when I  do a refresh which I don't think is supposed to happen. Also, when it refreshes it resets the Session["checkrefresh"] variable and throws an error  Object Reference not found i believe on the if statment with the .ToString() check against the ViewState.  Any ideas would be awesome because I'm running out of them         ASPX.CS pageusing System; using System.Collections.Generic; using System.Linq; using System.Web; using System.Web.UI; using System.Web.UI.WebControls; namespace CarouselApplicationSuite { public partial class TEStRefresh : System.Web.UI.Page { protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e) { // If this is not the first time and is a refresh (not button click) set Session Var if (!IsPostBack) { Session["CheckRefresh"] = Server.UrlDecode(System.DateTime.Now.ToString()); } } protected void Button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e) { if

Why Search Option is not working correctly in the People Search Box?

Why I click the Search Options, it opens the fields top of the webpart below the search box.
So basically 2 webpart looks like they are top of each others.


Search service no longer working. :(


I stuffed up my installation of SP 2010 by first installing MS Project 2010 onto the server.  I then removed the application, this is where my problems began.  After removing my entire SP sites would not work.  I figured I had to reinstall MS Project 2010 to get the SP Admin config wizard to work correctly.  My sites then came back online. :)  But now I find my searching is not working.

I am getting the following errors

The search application 'Search Service Application' on server <SERVERNAME> did not finish loading. View the event logs on the affected server for more information

In the event log

 Application Server Administration job failed for service instance Microsoft.Office.Server.Search.Administration.SearchServiceInstance (65a62f7e-3894-4ef8-baab-e5f699b7196a). Reason: The device is not ready. Technical Support Details: System.IO.FileNotFoundException: The device is not ready. at Microsoft.Office.Server.Search.Administration.SearchServiceInstance.Synchronize() at Microsoft.Office.Server.Administration.ApplicationServerJob.ProvisionLocalSharedServiceInstances(Boolean isAdministrationServiceJob)


Any ideas?

SharePoint & CRM 4.0 Integration - Cannot get finder/search working


I have a little problem with my current SharePoint and CRM integration. I used Codeplex's CRM BDC file and imported it with no issues. Using a BDC Item list I am able to pull off accounts from CRM. However, this is limted to 200 records and cannot be narrowed down.

I believe there is already an IDENumerator, Finder and Wildcard set up in the file. Has anyone managed to get this working with their own integrations? The application file has:

            <MethodInstance Type="SpecificFinder" ReturnParameterName="dbo.[FilteredAccount]" ReturnTypeDescriptorName="dbo.[FilteredAccount]DataReader" ReturnTypeDescriptorLevel="0" Name="dbo.[FilteredAccount]SpecificFinder" />
        <Method Name="dbo.[FilteredAccount]IDEnumerator">
            <Property Name="RdbCommandText" Type="System.String">Select [accountid] from dbo.[FilteredAccount]</Property>
