  • Hi,
        I have a Windows 2003 SBS with service pack2  running Sharepoint 3.0. I get the following error

    The start address <sts3://tannet-main:40841/contentdbid={0e0b583a-8066-4486-9823-edb0948a38d1}> cannot be crawled.

    Context: Application 'Search index file on the search server', Catalog 'Search'

        Access is denied. Check that the Default Content Access Account has access to this content, or add a crawl rule to crawl this content.   (0x80041205)

    Please help me inf fixing this error

  • The account your crawling is running with doesn't has enough permissions.

    You can check out which account is used for crawling by going to the Shared Service Provider under SharePoint Central Administration and check the search settings.


    Make sure the account used for your Office SharePoint Server Search Service is not a local service account.

  • Hi,
       I have tried using both the network service and my administrator account. But still getting the same error.

  • Have you checked the SharePoint error log in the 12 hive to check what is being logged there?
