MOSS 2007 Roadblock

  Asked By: Damaris    Date: May 13    Category: MOSS    Views: 654

I am 5 minutes into exploring SharePoint and I have hit a roadblock.
Searching has turned up nothing but unanswered threads. My server is a
domain member, all 64 bit. All on one computer although I did use the
custom setup.

The problem is trying to configure "Office SharePoint Server Search" to get
it running. I get a similar 'Search' error trying to configure "Windows
SharePoint Services Search" all on the 'Services on Server' web page.

"An unhandled exception occurred in the user interface. Exception
Information: OSearch (login name)"

and "SPSearch (login name)"

These errors seem to revolve around login names. Of course I have tried
several. Maybe a permissions problem?

Is there some place where these errors are documented so I don't have to
bother people for an answer?

I have seen that error before if you just put in the user name instead of using
this format Domain/Username hope this helps

As you can well imagine, faced with this error, I have tried every
possibility, and combination, I can think of. With domain and without.
Unfortunately, still the same error.

As I mentioned in my original post, I have searched everywhere for some
answers and all I have been able to find is unanswered threads of people
with similar errors. And like you, the threads all end with, "if you find
the answer please post it".

An unhandled exception occurred in the user interface. Exception
Information: OSearch (login name)

I have to try something so I am about to start clean again and use two
server boxes and separate the SQL server from SharePoint and see what effect
that has.
