Help!!! Error with Alerts

  Asked By: Connor    Date: Aug 21    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 922

When I try to create an alert, this is what I receive as the error message, any one has any idea what I need to do (and probably how)

"Your alert cannot be created at this time. The server administrator should verify that search services are running on an available index server."

On your 2003 server, right click on My Computer, select manage.

Expand Services and Applications

Click Services , in the right hand pain you will see all the services for your server

check that the following services are running Microsoft SharePointPS Serach, SharePoint Portal Alert and SharePoint Timer Service

Perhaps even more basic, do you have an index server specified in your topology?
