Path for Index File Location

  Asked By: Malinda    Date: Aug 26    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 2438

Seeing some odd errors in the Application log on the WFE. When I poke around
in the SSP screens for the "Shared Services Administration: SSP1-->system
status" I see that the:

1. server status is 'error'
2. Active Crawl -- is spinning, nothing displays
3. Recently Completed Crawls - spinning, nothing displays

If I select the right menu option of 'Content Sources' I get the error, ".....An
indexer is not assigned to the Shared Services Provider 'SSP1'. Configure an
indexer and a search database for this Shared Services Provider....".

And, if I click on the link to configure an indexer, I see the 'Path for the
index file location' is grayed out. Can't put anything there and even though I
can select a Index Server in the above drop down box and click 'okay' it errors
out due to the missing path.

Any ideas? This is a purely test environment running under VM. So, I'm not
worried about losing any index file or having to re-crawl etc. Quickest way to
get back up and running is what I'm after.
