Broken search with WSS 3.0

  Asked By: Virendra    Date: Aug 05    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1474

I can't get search to work on my site collection. It doesn't seem to
have a problem crawling the Central Admin site.

After initiating a full crawl, I get warning 2436: The start address
<sts3://...> cannot be crawled.

Then it will be followed by error 2424: The update cannot be started
because the content sources cannot be accessed. Fix the errors and try
the update again.

I'm running WSS 3.0SP1 in a farm setup with one WFE and one SQL Server
box. I've tried all the solutions I could find in Google, but still
have had no luck. Here's what I tried:

- setting search service and search content account to the same user
- tried using an admin account as the search service and search
content users
- logged in using the search content account to ensure it can access
the site using IE
- removed SSL from the default zone URL
- disabled loopback checking
- stopped and restarted search on the WFE (deleted search DB and
- re-ran the SharePoint Product and Technologies Configuration Wizard

Any one have any ideas?
