Solution deployment requires executing execadmsvcjobs command on search server to complete deploymen

We have multiple Sharepoint 2007 farms and deploy custom code weekly to the farms. On one o the farms it is required to run stsadm -o execadmsvcjobs on the Search server in the farm in order for solution deployments to complete deploying. These are solution recycles that we are running. This is the only farm this happens on and all farms are identical. In central admin it shows the solution state as deploying.

Wildcard Search in SP 2010

Dear Community, with Sharepoint 2010, Microsoft finally added a Wildcard Search. But only a prefixed one, at least as far as I found out. Is there a suffix wildcard search as well and I just didn't find it? If there isn't, can FAST Search do the job? Or do I have to implement a own (extended) search to do this (if even possible)? Thanks in advance, Greetings, SoundofSilence

Employee Search wildcard- Help with this code


As the default sharepoint search doesn't support wildcard, I used content editor webpart, and insert a code in the source

the code is available at http://www.ramonscott.com/wordpress/ 

It added a text field for First Name, last name and a drop down menu for Dept.

I added an extra text field for telephone ext. The problem that i'm facing is it is searching for exactly what i'm entering in the text field (not the wildcard)

e.g if my ext = 298 --> I should enter 298 to get my name in the result, otherwise the result will return nothing.

How can I change the code to return any record that contain 298 (whether it begins with 298, end with 298, or in the middle)

below is the code from Ramon Scott

<script language="javascript">
//function to handle enter on keyboard
function txtWildPeopleFinder_KeyDown(e)
if (e.keyCode == 13 || e.keyCode==10)
return false;
return true;
//escape apostrophes in search strings
function escapestr(str)
return str.replace("'","%22");

wildcard search


i want to do a wild card search in one of the db table data

currently i have 


="SELECT * FROM [Issues_vw] WHERE ([Title] LIKE '%' + @Title + '%')"


data shows when i input one word but when i put in multiple words nothing shows.

ex. if i put '64bit' data shows but when i put in '64bit windows' nothing shows up

how can this be done so i can search anything even if i put in '64bit windows' and lets say only '64bit' is in the @Title field it shows up.

anyways this can be done?


Wildcard People Search


We are looking for solution to implement wildcard people search. We have looked at javascript based solution but that does not solve our problem as it adds wildcard at the end of search criteria whereas we are looking for 'contains' kind of solution with wildcard at both ends of search criteria.


Somebody suggested ontolica enterprise search, but it is not very much clear from product page if wildcard search works on people search as well. Here we are looking for wildcard at both ends and not just at the end of search criteria. Same wildcard search should work from advanced search as well.

Search for a string in my datasource dynamically


I am displaying an Rssfeed on my page by using XmlDataSource and Datalist controls.

I want the user to be able to limit the information that is returned to my datalist.  To do this I have a textbox on the form that allows the user to enter their search criteria.

I need to be able to dynamically create a query string utilizing the information that the user entered in the textbox.  I am also using a drop down list and allowing the user to select whether they want to search in the title, description, or all parts of the xml file.

I am having trouble figuring out how to reference the data contained in my textbox in my query string.  Where the query string says 'asp', I want to replace 'asp' with the content from my sSearch variable.  Can anyone tell me how to reference my variable in the query string???

string sSearch = txtSearch.Text;
        string SQuery = "";

        if (DropDownList2.SelectedIndex == 0)
            SQuery = "[contains(title), 'asp')]";
