Another search question in SPS2003

  Asked By: Geoffrey    Date: Sep 13    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 557

I think this question has already been answered once but I don't
remember the solution. I have installed RTM of SPS 2003 and the database is
residing on a SQL server with full text searching enabled.

I have created a main portal site and sub sites within that main portal site. I
have enabled searching and created content sources of the subsites as well as
the main portal space. Ran full crawls of the portal site and sub sites.

When I do a search on the main portal site for a document that is in the sub
site I get no results. However, if I do a search from the sub site for the same
document I get results. I am searching on the main portal and sub sites form my
pc which I am admin on the entire server itself as well as both main portal and
sub sites.

Any ideas?

Were the crawls successful?
When you created the sites, did you check the box that saids include in
search results?
If you didn't check this box, then you are not going to get any results
from these sites.

Yes, the crawls were successful. I did check the box that said include in
search results. Also, I reset the indexes and re-ran full updates, but this did
not help.

Try look into your DNS configuration, and check if it is setup
correctly, and if that do not work, then check your hostname
