SPS2003 Search Issue

  Asked By: Angelo    Date: May 08    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 8107

Having a problem getting the search working in SPS2003. Everything looks OK
from what I can tell (eg the Default Content Access Account is part of an
Active Directory Group that is listed as the "Sharepoint Administrative
Group"), but am receiving the following errors:

The address could not be found, (0x80040D7B - Document filtering cannot be
completed because the document server did not respond within the specified
timeout. Try crawling the server later, or increase the timeout values. )

The Incremental update is complete

3/2/2004 9:10:00 AM Modify http://<PortalURL>/
The address could not be found, (0x80041205 - Access is denied. Check that
the Default Content Access Account in SharePoint Central Administration is
correct, or follow the "Exclude and Include Content" link to add a rule to
specify the proper crawling account to access this URL. )

Well, without seeing your server, I'd say there is something wrong with
the people update content  source or there is an exclusion rule  that is
conflicting with your ability to crawl the content source.

I had search  issues as you have, as well as others. We had installed
SPS on a member server  using an Domain OU admin account. The down
side to this was that the password gets changed every 15 days so I
created a new SPS admin account  and then I systematically changed
all access  accounts in the portal, IIS application pools and the SQL
dbs. This fixed the problems for me.

I direct this question at you as the Expert ! I'm still new to sps  but
can you please explain a few things about sps which I can't get my head

Is WSS a free application included with 2003 server. Does I need any
client licences to use it ?

Is the concept, we use WSS for small department role outs, but then
connect to SPS for a full enterprise wide solution. If so at what stage
do I need a user licence ?

Well there is no direct WSS licencing but you do need to ensure you have
sufficient Windows CALs! Also the added licencing can enter in if you are
using SQLServer as your database rather than WSMDE. The advantage to using
SQLServer is the added support for searching through document  libraries!

I had tried something similar - created a new account, gave it the necessary
permissions to the SQL databases, put it into the "Sharepoint Administration
Group" that is set in SPS and added it to the Local Administrators group  on
the web server  (I did see if I could narrow it down to specific user rights,
but none of these seemed to work). I amended the account  to use for the
crawl and this worked - the crawl completed successfully.

I then added the original account to the Local Administrators group on the
web server, changed the crawl back to use the default  account and...

it still didn't work :-(

Yet, this account appears to be correctly working  for the rest of the portal
& the Application Pool!!!???
