MOSS 2007 search crawler errors RRS feed

  • Question

  • Server 2003 R2

    MOSS 2007

    2 WFE's (one intranet, noe extranet)

    1 app server running search service

    SQL cluster

    Search used to work fine but for the past several weeks it is not crawling our intranet or people.  The Crawl log says: sps3://xyzIntranet.abc.com (we are using FQDN) "The item could not be accessed on the remote server because its address has an invalid syntax.

    Also: http://xyzIntranet.abc.com same message as above.

    The Content Source it says that about is the default Local Office SharePoint Server sites which contains the addresses above which used to work fine and have not been changed. 

    The loopback check is already disabled on the box where search is running.  I have looked online and tried various things like stopping and restarting the search service in windows, reapplying the same password for the service account, etc. 

    The Event log shows a Warning (Event ID 2436) "The start address ... cannot be crawled...invalid syntax"

    Nothing about the syntax of these urls has changed.  Any help would be appreciated.  thanks!
