SP2007 - Search Results Dropping Out

  Date: May 30    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 523

Every couple days on my SP2007 machine it seems like search results just drop
out. One day I will search for a specific word, and get 2048 results. The next
morning I get 20, or 28 or so. The I start a full crawl, and after the crawl
finishes, and its back to 2048. Also, when it pulls large search results the
number is a multiple of 256. What's up with that?

No one with any thoughts on this? Google searches haven't turned up much, but I
know sometimes it's just a matter of searching with the right phrase or
combination of words.

Is there anything in your crawl logs? Sounds like a crawl (either full
or multiple incrementals) are failing in some way which is dropping
results. Large numbers of results are estimates, since security
trimming is done late in the process to improve performance.

I just checked them. There is one error, a Word doc couldn't be crawled because
it had a .docx extension. There were about 4200 warning msgs, many stating that
the mas download limit was reached.

Adjust the max size of crawling. Your crawler stop crawling the file once it
reach the size limit.

I think the issue may be permissions. I got over 700 error msgs last night when
the site was crawled. So I changed the perms for the default content access
acct. We'll see in the morning what I get.

I think I've solved this issue. The account used for crawling didn't have proper
permissions. I upped permissions, then logged as that user and ran a full crawl
and all the results are back. Bryan, thanks for the tip about the crawl logs!

Ah, problem not fixed. Now having to manually start a crawl of the site every
morning!
