Searching Error

  Asked By: Kara    Date: Jan 29    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 600

I get this error message when I do a search at the portal level:

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

This only happens at the portal level and not at the site level.

I found article 838223 which references this problem. Has anybody had this
problem or tried the workaround that is recommended in this article? It
recommended using catutil.exe (article 825484) to remove the catalogs that are
not correct. I'm assuming this is the "Delete an Index" section? But what is the
workspace_name that they are referencing?

If I do this, will this resolve my problem because also in article 838223, they
also stated that "If you intend to add the catalog back to the Index Server, you
must rebuild the catalog first, and then re-propagate the catalog". How do you
do that?

I'm confused by this article. I'm just wondering if anybody has attempted to
follow this article to resolve the problem or if you have a workaround, please
