Create a new SSP using an existing SSP Search Database RRS feed

  • Question

  • I  have an issue with my existing (default) SSP which has led to me creating a new (second) SSP. Eventually, once I have changed all of the associations to the second SSP, this will become my default with the original being deleted.

    Is it possible for me to use my Search Database from my first SSP and use this with my second, thus negating the need for me to re-crawl all d my content, re-create scopes and crawl rules etc? When I created the second SSP, I tried pointing this (using the 'New SSP' UI) at the existing database but was told that 'the database is not empty' - therefore, I had to create a new one.

    So, as things stand, by having a new Search Database, I will be forced to re-crawl all of my content databases meaning a significant outage in terms of applications being indexable.
