Search Problems

  Asked By: Theresa    Date: Jan 17    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 601

I am facing a typical problem in search in SPS v1.
I have 3 workspaces on which different sites are configured.I have not
scheduled any time for updating the index.
Out of 3 workspaces,for 2 of them the index state parameter in SPS MMC
is constantly showing Indexing Incrementally from past 2 days but for
the last one it is properly showing all the states like "Idle" etc.

I have restarted the services on the SPS box, and I have stopped and
restarted the update but it seems not to work.
I don't want to do a Full Index as mail will be sent out to users for

Has anybody faced this type of problem before and can any body suggest

I have found the cause of this problem.
Whenever the Veritas Back Up fails, the indexing  service goes for a toss.
To get a quick fix, the workaround is restart the machines.
But this can't be a lont term solution.

Has anybody encountered the same?
Any suggestions..

Just a thought, would stopping the search  service before the backup,
then restarting the search after solve this problem?
