SharePoint 2010 Basic Search Issue

    Question

  • Hello All,

    In our environment we have all host header site web application and within which we have hostheader site collection. Facing a strange issue with search on one of the host header webapplication.

    Just to explain the issue clearly will specify a dummy hostheader web app name

    Host header web app name : contoso.ms.com

    As part of project requirment we have created few site collections named as http://contoso.ms.com/sites/a

    http://contoso.ms.com/sites/b and http://contoso.ms.co/sites/c. Within all these site collection there are few sub site and few document library where we have some documents.

    The web application contoso.ms.com is getting crawled in Local Office SharePoint site contnet source. Full crawl is completed for the content source and able to see the documents that are crawled from all the site collections and the subsites. Issue is when I goto search for any document on the site http://contoso.ms.com I'm unable to get results from any of the site collection specified above.

    No errors found in crawl logs also.

    Checked the search settings and it is set to do not use custom scope and target result page is /_layouts/OSSSearchResults.aspx

    Tried creating a new search center page still unable to get search results on the new search center.

    Checked http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/sharepoint/en-US/688b5c52-f478-463b-bc00-debfd0c3be2b/sharepoint-server-2010-search-not-returning-results-but-crawling-without-errors but could not find any help.

    Any help would be appreciated.

  • Mixing Host Named Site Collections and Path based site collections within the same web application is a bad idea and bad things can happen.

    Have you checked the permissions for the documents and the user searching?

  • Yes, permission seems to be fine. Issue with SCA and farm admin too.
