Portal Search Return Error

  Asked By: Ernie    Date: Jan 07    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1122

I have been messing with my SPS farm (I tried to add another server and
have it perform indexing and job functions), and now I get the
following when I do a portal search:

Your search encountered an error. If the problem persists, contact the
portal site administrator.

WSS search is working fine.

Any thoughts?

Make sure all of your service accounts are in order..... Check the index service on the new server  and run it under the same account as MS Search on your Front End Servers...

I checked that, and everything is running under the same account. I
found an entry on MSDN about a tool called catutil. I think it will
fix my problem, but I am nervous to try it, because the instructions
are very good. Anyone used it?

Catutil is only for SPS 2001 and backwards compatible document libraries. If you’re not using Backwards compatible document libraries it won’t be helpful.
