Search problem

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

I have MOSS 2007 SP2, and I am having a wierd problem with searching.

If I go to a site do a search for a common term, it pulls up a bunch of results, and I can go through page by page viewing those results.  When I click on "view by relevance", it brings up a page full of results, but the problem is that when I click on page 2, (or any of the subsequent page numbers), it times out after a minute with an error of "Your search cannot be completed because of a service error. Try your search again or contact your administrator for more information."

If I keep trying I eventually get an error of "The search request was unable to connect to the Search Service"

However if I switch over to a different site and do a search on something else, it works fine when viewed by modified date.

I'm looking at my SSP Search Admin screen, and it says the last incremental crawl completed successfully.  There were a few errors, but none that look like they would be applicable here, (unknown file types and that kind of thing).

Looking at the Server event log it shows a few warning errors on the task catagory "Gatherer" of " The index was paused. Context: Application 'SSP1', Catalog 'Por

problem rename sharepoint 2010 search service application admin database

Hi all, i have a problem that hopefully someone has an answer to.  i am not too familiar with sharepoint so please excuse my ignorance. we have sharepoint 2010 on a windows 2008r2 server.  everything seems to work fine.  but as you know, the default database names are horrendous.  i have managed to rename all of them, except for the "search service application" admin database. the default is: Search_Service_Application_DB_<guid> the other 2 databases (crawl and property) were renamed without a problem. we are following the article from technet on how to rename the search service admin db (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-nz/library/ff851878%28en-us%29.aspx).  it says to enter the following command: $searchapp | Set-SPEnterpriseSearchServiceApplication -DatabaseName "new database name" -DatabaseServer "dbserver" however, i get an error about identity being null.  no big deal, i add the -Identity switch and the name of my search service application.  but the real problem comes the error it throws:   Set-SPEnterpriseSearchServiceApplication : The requested database move was aborted as the associated search application is not paused. At line:1 char:54 + $searchapp | Set-SPEnterpriseSearchServiceApplication <<<<  -Identity "Search Service Application" -DatabaseName "ShareP

Problem With SharePoint Designer 2010 and the Search.asmx Web Service

I've created a web service datasource on a 2010 site using SharePoint Designer. When I try to make use of the datasource on a page I get the "The server returned a non-specific error when trying to get data from the data source..." message. The datasource connects to _vti_bin/search.asmx. I am using the QueryServiceSoap port and operation QueryX. I've tried various queryXml strings, including site & people searches using both SQL and keyword syntax. eg <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?><QueryPacket xmlns="urn:Microsoft.Search.Query" Revision="1000"><Query domain="QDomain"> <SupportedFormats><Format>urn:Microsoft.Search.Response.Document.Document</Format></SupportedFormats> <Context>   <QueryText language="en-US" type="MSSQLFT"><![CDATA[ SELECT Size, Rank, Path, Title, Description, Write, Filename, Description, Author FROM scope() WHERE CONTAINS ('"Lorum"') AND  ( ("SCOPE" = 'All Sites') )   ORDER BY "Rank" DESC ]]></QueryText> </Context> <Range><StartAt>1</StartAt><Count>20</Count></Range> <EnableStemming>false</EnableStemming> <TrimDuplicates>true</TrimDuplicates> <IgnoreAllNoiseQuery>true&l

FAST Search Installation Problem

I tried the post install step for Fast Search on a Windows 2008 server without domain names (I used local user names only, due to constraints of our sandbox machine on our production network). The post-install step failed. In the installer log file I see: 1/4/2010 2:13:18 PM Verbose InstallAction - Creating IPSec configuration... 1/4/2010 2:13:22 PM Error Utility.WriteException - Exception -  : Exception - System.ArgumentException: A problem occurred when retrieving information on machine: watsdevsp2010.

Sharepoint search problem and document set doubt!



My search system is not working, no matter what I try to search (even documents I KNOW that exist in Sharepoint) the search have no results... what have I done wrong?

Many thanks,

Sharepoint Search problem


I'm sure this has been asked to death but I have researched and still confused. After getting search up and running I had a normal user try a search and it come up with everything on our file server including other users personal folders. How do I limit the search results to just the files he has permission to? I belive scope rules where I want to make this change but I have no idea what to put in there if I am in the right place. Will someone please point me int he right direction.

Search Problem with SharePoint Foundation on SBS 08


I upgraded to Sharepoint foundation 2010 on my SBS 2008 server that I just set up, and followed the instructions in this whitepaper: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff959273%28WS.10%29.aspx

I followed this guide to the letter, and cannot get the search working for my sharepoint site.  When I first tried it, it errored out with the following message:


Your search cannot be completed because this site is not assigned to an indexer. Contact your administrator for more information.


Googling that provided a solution, to go into central admin, manage content databases, ShareWebDB and select a search server, which there is only one choice (which is the name of the server).

That seemed to make the search work, but it can't ever find anything, even stuff I know is there.  I went and looked in the event viewer, and found this:



Log Name: Application

Backup problem on SP 2007 - Shared search index


I am having a problem that I really can't figure out, and have found -nothing- online.


When I run a backup (from Central Admin or stsadm) it hangs just after trying to start the Shared Search Index, as seen from the log below:

MS SQL Server: Search All Tables, Columns & Rows For Data or Keyword Query

If you need to search your entire database for specific data, this query will come in handy.

So when a client needs a custom report or some sort of custom development using Great Plains, most of the time I will have to track down the data in the system by running this query and find the table(s) it is in.
