Manually Perform A Search Refresh On All Content

  Asked By: Joseph    Date: Aug 17    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1412

With the Title property in WSS 3.0, all of our search queries return
the Title for the header. However, most of our documents have really
bad titles. To fix this we decided to run a SQL query to update the
title property so it is the same as the document Name. This works fine,
however the search database never updates these values since it was
done behind the scenes. My guess is that whenever you update a document
it is flagged somehow to be updated the next time the Search Refresh is

Is there a way to manually refresh all the documents in the search
database? This way all my changes behind the scenes should show up.

Could it be that the change will only be picked up by a full crawl and
not an incremental one?

There is no 'reset' function in Windows SharePoint Services 3.0. If it
is a standalone server, stopping and start the service in CENTRAL ADMIN
should do it.

Or, the way I do it:

Stsadm.exe -o spsearchdiacriticsensitive -setstatus True

Be sure not to use the ' -noreset'. Because you change diacritics, it
forces a Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 index reset
