It seems I have a bad luck with Sharepoint Search. I recently installed MOSS 2007 on a machine running Win2003 SP2, SQL 2005 SP2 and VS2005 SP1.
Installation went smooth and everything was ok, until I wanted to play around with MOSS Search.
So I went to Central Administration, Shared Services home page settings and entered the search settings, I started a crawl on the existing content source (Local office sharepoint...), and it gave me three errors, for each start address in the content source (http://servername:portnumber
), and the crawl was not successful, here is the error:
The protocol handler cannot be found.Check that the handler has been installed.
I also checked the event viewer, the same warning was given for each start address (event id 2436).
I tried to create a new content source, or even change some settings for the search service, but a strange error appeared after pressing ok (I did not find a match for it on google :( )
The application is unable to accept further updates because the last attempt to persist the state failed
If someone has any tip (other than reinstalling :D ) so that I make search functional kindly share it with me, or lead me to the way for solving this problem.
Thanks in Advance
