After upgrading from SharePoint Portal Server 2003 to Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 Beta 2 TR:
Symptom: Search results contain links to content which is not reachable by users. This happens because the crawler gets farm admin credentials for crawling which may crawl more than is desired.
Search results may contain items whose publication date is expired, or which has not yet been published.
Workaround: Change crawl account from farm admin to an account that has only read permissions on the portal content.
- Go to central admin page.
- Navigate to the Application Management tab.
- In the Application Security Section, click Policy for Web Application.
- In the right most corner, make sure that the correct application is selected. If not, select the correct one by clicking on the drop-down arrow and then selecting the application in the pop-up window and press ok.
- Click on Add users -> Next, and then enter a domain account and give it Full Read permissions -> Finish.
- Go to SSP admin page.
- In Search section, click Search settings.
- Click Crawl rules.
- Add a new rule and provide a path which covers your portal site.
- Select Include all items in this path.
- Specify crawling account and enter account and password , and for the account which you have given full read permissions.
||The temporary folder used for search indexing is created on the operating system drive rather than under the configured data directory. The size of this folder may grow and fill the partition. If the disk runs out of space, crawls will fail.
The workaround is:
Look for the regkey based on the product as stated below:
MOSS: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office Server\12.0\Search\Global\Gathering Manager
WSS: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Shared Tools\Web Server Extensions\12.0\Search\Global\Gathering Manager
Set the following:
- TempPath = Custom path
- UseSystemTemp = 0
Change the ACL on the custom folder to:
- FC - service account
- FC - admins
- FC - system
After updating the registry, restart the Office SharePoint Server Search service (osearch)
- In a command line, type net stop osearch
- net start osearch
||On SPS 2003 to MOSS 2007 gradual upgrade, the v2 portal address is changed but not updated in the content sources list on v2. Due to this, the urls in the Search results are incorrect and user might see documents that are unreachable by them.
Workaround is to:
- Go to the v2 search administration pages.
- Click Manage content sources.
- Click on edit of the content source that crawls the v2 portal.
- Fix up the start address to the new v2 portal start address post upgrade.
Upon a clean install of Beta 2TR, if your Office SharePoint Servers farm includes separate Indexing and Query servers, the shared folder for search index propagation must be configured before starting a crawl.
Symptom: If this workaround was not performed: After the Search Service, in the Search Settings page in Shared Services Administration, the "Propagation Status" line will indefinitely display "Initializing" for each query server in the farm. Any search crawls will stop crawling new documents after crawling a limited ammount of content.
For each query server (a server running the Office SharePoint Server Search service, and is configured to "serve search queries" only):
Run the command:
stsadm -o osearch -propagationlocation <location>
where <location> is the desired file system path for the search index files.
||After gradual upgrade on a medium farm, Office SharePoint Server Search was not started on Query boxes
Go to the Services in Server page in central admin.
Click Start for Office SharePoint Server Search Service.
Check the query role only.
||The spacing, alignment and styles on the search results page are incorrect. The "Go" button for search results is the green button with the arrow key instead of the magnifying glass.
