Search Service not starting MOSS 2007 after SP2

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 19, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
 

Hello,

I installed SP2 on my MOSS 2007 Farm last weekend and search is not starting now. When i try to start using

 

stsadm -o osearch -action start -role IndexQuery -farmcontactemail sharepoint@dynegy.com -farmperformancelevel Maximum -farmserviceaccount <userAccount> -farmservicepassword <Password> -defaultindexlocation D:\Sharepoint_Idx -ssp SharedServicesDynegy

 

I get the following error.

 

 'start' action failed. Additional information: Time out has expired and the operation has not been completed.

 

Starting the office search service takes me to the error page with the following message.

 

An unhandled exception occurred in the user interface.Exception Information: Time out has expired and the operation has not been completed.

Search was working properly before the Service Pack 2 install.

People search in MOSS 2007

  

Hi,

 

I don’t know much about the search settings in SharePoint. I have a requirement like I want to enable the people search for one of the SharePoint site which was created by someone else.

 

I know that people search will be activated by default if we choose the site template as collaboration portal, but in this case I am not sure about the template they used to create. By the way is there any way to find out which site template they used to create the site; that is apart.

 

What are the settings required to enable the people search in MOSS 2007.

Search returns nothing, crawler works fine(i believe) in MOSS 2007

  

Hello,

i did some research in the forum before posting, but i can't seem to find a real solution for my problem, even though there are many threads discussing similar or maybe even the same problem. I will describe the problem in short, and then if someone can help me out and needs more info i can give more details etc.

So, i am new in my enterprise, and also to "real" informatics (recently graduated master 2) and i am supposed to administer the internal IT of the company. The SharePoint expert of my company just changed job, so i was kinda hired to replace him. The problem is, i have limited experience with SharePoint, just had my 70-630 yesterday but i am no expert. 

The problem with our SharePoint is that the search won't work(doh!). The crawler is working fine, we get things indexed etc, but then searches return nothing. I tried playing with scopes but as far as i can see, it's not that. What's weird is that apparently the search worked fine at some point in the past, then just mysteriously stopped. I discussed with the ex-admin and we tried to fix it, but we couldn't get it working.

 

I am kinda stuck, don't know where to look and which settings i need to check, on what le

Hello All,

Can anyone point me in the right direction to build out one custom search webpart.

Do i need to use consumer-proivder webpart to do that. Beacause i wanted to show the results in a separate grid on the same page.

Any pointers are greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

Is a multiple administrative and service accounts a MUST for MOSS 2007/2010?

  

Want to set up a MOSS 2007 server farm and was reading up on how to do it. One Msft article insist that I need multiple accounts. My sys admin tells me that I can use one account for everything. This account is a domain account and is a member of the domain admin group, it has dbcreator, public, secadmin, serveradmin, sysadmin roles on the db server.

Any thought on the topic?

Thanks,
