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.

Sharepoint 2010 "Some content or files on this webpage require a program that you don't have instal


This may be a DNS question.

New SP 2010 install, single server lab environment.
I can create and access site collections under the first web application SP2010 (Sharepoint 80, http://sp2010)

I have created another web application, different database, different port (777), and given it a different URL (test.otherdomain.com:777)
I have created a corresponging site collection (default team site).
Opened port 777 TCP incoming and outgoing in the windows firewall
Created a host (A record) in my DNS test.otherdomain.com (IP of the sharepoint server which is really called SP2010.mydomain.com)

nslookup returns the correct IP address, but when I type test.otherdomain.com:777 into a browser window I get
"Some content or files on this webpage require a program that you don't have installed" both from another machine on the network and on the Sharepoint server.

SharePoint 2010 Search Service - does not escape forbidden signs in Managed Metadata fields



I´m using SharePoint 2010s Search Service to get items from a list. In the list I have managed metadata field for Item. When I search on Item "Item 1 & 2" I get xml that is incorrect. SharePoint does not escape the &. (The mapping is correct so when I search on an item not containg & it returns correct xml.)

But if I in my description field writes "A description & some more text" then & is escaped.

Anyone seen this before? Is there some way to configure the search service to escape forbidden signs to return none broken xml?

Sharepoint 2010 Search Results crawling content on Quick Launch


I have a custom search scope defined for a site.  When I search, it is returning results for text that it is finding on the quick launch menu.  (For example, if the listname 'Tickets' is on the Quick Launch and the user searches for 'Tickets', all of the pages in the site get returned because the word 'Tickets' is on the Quick Launch)

Is this correct?  Is there any way to override that? 

SharePoint 2010 Event Receiver verifying Content Types inside Document Sets

Now my scenario is that, one of the content types - which is referred as Main Report should not be used twice. I mean, within the document set, only one document of Main Report content type should exist. How can we do this?


Display files (where we dont have access to) in Search Results- Sharepoint 2007



Is there a way in which we can make the sharepoint search result display- files where we dont have access to ?

The requirement is that-

There are many files stored in document libraries which are either "Shared" or "Confidential"

Now normally The Confidential documents are not displayed in the search result of sharepoint search. (Since access to those files are denied)


Is There a way in which we make these files appear in the search result ? However when the user clicks on the URL/Title of the file the "Access Denied Page" is displayed (If the user doesnt have access).


This is because we dont want the files (Which are declared confidential) to be re-created.

Sharepoint Search using Metadata Properties


Is it advisable to put all of my custom searchable columns into one Metadata Property for search query?

so lets say instead of querying freetext('column1', "searchkey") AND freetext('column2', "searchkey") ..

would it be better if I create a Property Mapping called MyColumns with properties column1 and column2 then query

freetext('MyColumns', "searchkey") ??
