Yesterday someone pointed out that there were zero results coming back to
any query in WSS search. I decided to disable the search facility using
SharepointAdmin website. After about 5 minutes of waiting and watching the
SQL box go to 100% it finally came back stating that the search was now
The next step now was to re-enable full-text search. I ticked the box and
clicked OK, the wheels kept spinning for close to 20mins and then the error
came back on screen:
"Thread was being aborted."
None of the search boxes were available under any of the WSS sites.
I found an article in Trouble Shooting Other Issues in the WSS Admin Guid
I restarted services as described and then run the stored procs
Both finished with Warnings about ntext etc. I tried browsing to the WSS
site but still the search box was not available.
Any help greately appreciated.
