I know this topic has been posted numerous times before, but I have a weird one on my hands and therefore thought it reasonable to open a new thread.
I was getting this error message using the default "Local Sharepoint Sites" Content Source. I'm not sure why it started.
I had three entries, all of which point to the same SP site:
I was getting the error above for http://ecm. When removing ecm from the list, it appeared to search, but the site was removed from the search results.
I created a NEW content source of Sharepoint sites with simply
http://sharepoint. I confirmed the domain account used for DCA account had Full Read on the Web app level, and wasn't a farm admin. A Farm admin domain account is used on the search services in the MMC.
This NEW content source worked! The only flaw is when I click on the site in the refinements pane, it then states there are no results. If I look at all the results, it indeed does return results for the site.
Because this source worked using the default DCA account, I'm stumped why it won't search my other mapping or by using sps3?
Any ideas would be helpful. Thanks!
