Unable to crawl on AAM url RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi guys,

    On both our dev and prod farm, I am unable to crawl content from a URL http://asite.mydomain.net . It works only on the machine name http://myserver:80

    The host header of myserver:80 is asite.mydomain.net.

    I check the access to thoses sites using the crawler account, and everything is allright.

    I had the same topology in a SharePoint 2007 farm, and I was able to crawl content from asite.mydomain.net or myserver:80

    What's wrong ???

    Any idea ?

  • Hi,

    I think the crawl is blocked by loopback security checking. Check about loopback security checking here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/896861. Usually, I would configure crawl to machine URL and change the result URL to AAM. All configuration are available in search service.
