SharePoint 2003 Search

  Asked By: Cale    Date: Dec 15    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 759

Whenever I try to search for anything on the portal
site, I don't get any results. I am typing in valid
search phrases for content on the portal but all I keep on
getting is that nothing was found. I restarted the Saerch
service and tried again, but I still get the same results.
Any ideas? I have went through and performed full manual updates but this has
not helped. I am also seeing errors in the application event log regarding the
The content source <http://server/> cannot be accessed.
Context: http://server / Application, Portal_Content Catalog

Any ideas?

This won't help much, but I've only gotten our instance of SPS v2TR to
search external sources (try it). I get the same errors. A while back
on this list I posted the problem and was told the only solution found
at the time was a reinstall of the software, which we have not gotten
around to doing yet.

Things I tried:

1. Recreating all content sources, groups and indexes.
2. Changing the account that SPS uses for searching.
3. Stopping and restarting everything from the search  service to the
machine itself.
4. Banging my head on the wall.

Obviously none of this worked - If you do figure out what the problem
is, please post it, as I know you and I are not the only ones with this
