Search - How to remove a meta tag ... / custom column is not showing up in Crawled Properties after

Hi I got the following warning after I crawled a site. Info out of Crawl Log: "The content for this address was excluded by the crawler because this item was marked with a no-index meta-tag. To index this item, remove the meta-tag and recrawl." Sound easy but I don't no where I could do it. The other problem is that I try to get a custom column from a custom list showing up in the crawle properties. I am using also a custom scope with the behavior "INCLUDE" ... In MOSS 2007 it was a lot simpler ;-) Thanks Regards MIA

How to Configure search for meta-data based retrieval of documents into Document Libraries?


I need to crawl update of newly created/updated documents within document libraries. My understanding says i need to create the new content source and associate the crawls.. and newly created and updated documents would be crawled in the next sceduled incremental crawl. But my question is how i can create the dadicated content source for document libraries as the content as there is no such content source type.

Any suggestion or workaround would be greatly appreciated.



SharePoint 2010 Search mapped properties and BDC filter descriptors


Are the mapped properties in SharePoint search at all related to the BDC FilterDescriptors? I have a custom datasource crawled using a BDC which is all working fine but I want to make use of the refinements panel to do further filtering in the results set based on fields in that custom datasource. I'm wondering if filter descriptors are the place to start?


Any thoughts would be really appreciated!

Fast Search 4 Sharepoint 2010 Business Data Connectivity (BDC) - IEntity Could not be found


Hi, I am using Fast for Sharepoint and I have created a simple Employee database in SQL server 2008 and I am trying to crawl this database.

Using Sharepoint designer, I have created an external repository and I have configured it to look at my test database. After trying to crawl this database - I get two successfyul documents crawled - which are just junk documents. And 5 errors.  The errors say:

Error while crawling LOB contents. ( IEntity could not be found using criteria 'Id=2502'. )

I also noticed that if I was to disable "Defaul Action" from the BDC configuration, then I get all successful crawled documents. However, if I click on any of those documents in the search page, then it brings me to "unkown page". 

This makes sense since Default Action (View Profiles) is disabled. Does anyone know how to avoid this error message above without having to disable Defaul Action check box? 

P.S. I can also see that the connection between SQL Server - BDC - SP is working since when I create a user profile page, I can see that data populate.

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") ??


Need some advice from Sharepoint search gurus


Managed Properties in the Advanced Search page of Sharepoint Server 2007


Hi all,

I want to search a custom field in a SharePoint list by using the Advanced Search page. I followed this post http://interdata.cl/?p=368 and i was able to find all metadata properties without any blank.  For example, I´ve created columns called "Baseline", or "Milestone" and it works properly, but for example, "Document Code" doesn´t works.


The field shows up correctly in the Advanced Search properties, but whenever I do a search trying to specify my custom property I get the error message: "Your search cannot be completed because of a service error. Try your search again or contact your administrator for more information.".

if I look at the Managed property in Central administration, it tells me "Number of objects with this property: more than 350", so the data is mapped correctly to the property.


Thanks in advance,



Sharepoint not re-indexing document meta data. For example it still finds a document which has had


Hi all,


I have a problem with SharePoint search not re-indexing a file after it has been modified.  For example I have a document which used to have the text testing12345 in the document so if I searched using that name I would find the document.  However I have now modified the document and removed testing12345 for the document saved it and since re-indexed the site.  Despite doing this performing a search for testing12345 it still finds my original document even though it no longer has and references.
