What happens when you try to search? Is there any error message at all
(like Internal Server Error), or does it return with "no documents found".

What's in the event log under Application? under Security?

What's in your W3SVC1 log? (typically WINNT\system32\LogFiles\W3SVC1 --
possibly called exyymmdd.log, like ex020508.log)

Have you tried it with a Reader, Author and Coordinator? Have you tried it
with documents in the document library vs content sources? Have you tried
it with different users who might have different file-based permissions than

Do subscriptions work?

When was the last time it worked? What changed since then?

Do you have a backup from before the last time? Can you back up your
current setup, restore that last backup, and test again?

I have done all of this and I still only have "This site" in the drop-
down on my search  page. I have a search workspace and an index
workspace on a different server where I've added content sources.
I've included search scopes for a couple of the content sources. The
indexes have been updated and propagated. The search scopes are
still not available.

Can anyone help  please?

When you create the content source (or if you look at the proerties of one
you have alltready created) you will find a scope tab.

Enter the name that you want to give the external source here. Then apply

That name will then appear as a searchable scope in the search  webpart.

You need to also create "dummy" content sources on your search  workspace
that match those on your index workspace and add the same search scopes

These content sources never need to be indexed and normally I would put
an invalid URL in them just in case anyone does accidentally kick an
index off!

I also asked this question on the MS newsgroups, but the only response I
got was that the search  is done through form variables and not url
variables, so I couldn't figure out how to form a URL.

If you find it, please post.
