MOSS 2007 Search Crawl failing with odd warning

  Asked By: Nadia    Date: Apr 22    Category: MOSS    Views: 1954

This is a two-server farm (one SQL Server, one MOSS box with everything on
it). MOSS SP2, Windows 2003 SP2, and SQL 2005.

The last crawl (an incremental) happened on April 30. No application log
errors have been noted since then, and the crawl log still shows all the
green dots from its previous activity (no new yellow or red ones).

However, when I try to set off a full crawl, I get the following warning
from the windows event log:

The start address <http://ServerAddressRemovedButIKnowIt'sCorrect> cannot be

Context: Application 'SSP1', Catalog 'Portal_Content'

The specified address was excluded from the index. The crawl rules may
have to be modified to include this address. (0x80040d07)

I can hit this address (a FQDN) from the browser on the server, so it
doesn't appear to be a loopback problem. I even messed with the crawl rule
just in case, though I'm fairly certain I haven't touched it since before
this stopped working. Nothing seems to make sense, and Dr. Google hasn't
prescribed anything helpful.

Any spare clues out there?

Did you (or someone) install a hotfix right before this occured? I am getting
this error too, every 5 minutes. 5 hotfixes were applied, and then 30 minutes
later these errors started happening.

I'm not aware of any hotfix installation. Nothing shows up in the event log
as far as I can see. I'll check again just to be sure.

Let me know if you learn anything further.

BTW, I also checked on the "blocked file type" suggestion, but our farm
doesn't block text files.

I tired both of those fixes, but I don't know what to put in for "Value Data"
for host names. Any help with that?

I tried that and it didn't stop the error.........

loopback check is old hat for me. Doesn't seem to be the problem here.
Besides, I've never seen *that* error (from my original post) when loopback
is the problem.
