Web Application and SSP association

  Asked By: Alec    Date: Feb 06    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1495

This is a new one im sure. I have an application that will not
fully associate with any SSP. I currently have 2 SSPs created and
can switch the apps association back and forth from one to the
other, but the app never actually associates with either SSP. I know
this based on a few clues but I will only cover a couple.

1. When looking at the View Scopes page under Search Settings in the
SSP, I dont see any of the collections from my web app in the list
of collecitons that can use the scopes. Therefore my web app cannot
utilize any of the indexed data from the SSP. (Actually the app is
unable to use several of the services provided by the SSP, search
just being one of them)

2. I get the glorious Unknown Error and Web Part Error when trying
to use any search parts or pages with my web app. So the thought
might be that the problem lies with the SSP. This is not the case
because if I create a new application, it will associate with the
SSP and all functions operate as normal. Also the SSP can crawl and
index the content in the problematic SSP.

I cannot afford to dump the web app and start over due to the nature
of the site.

So my question is this...

Is there a way to force a web app to disassociate itself with any
and all SSPs without deleting the SSP itself?
This would probrably be a command line stsadm thing but I have been
unsuccessful in finding the proper command.
Thanks in advance.

What are your logs telling you about the errors?

Logs are telling me nothing. Event log is not registering an event
when the error  occures and I cant really find my way around the
other logs yet. However, the event log seems to be operating
correctly and SharePoint is sending other events to the log.
