Sharepoint Search not working

If you are running Sharepoint with SQL (not WMSDE), you’re supposed to be able to perform full text searchies. If searching is not working for you, make sure it’s enabled. Here’s how:

1. Click Start > Administrative Tools > Sharepoint Central Administration.
2. Scroll down to the Component Configuration section
3. Click on the Configure full text search link
4. Click the box to enable full text search
5. Click OK, and then wait several seconds while it updates.

  4. I came across this problem a long time ago when first working with Windows SharePoint Services sites. After a lot of testing I came up with a solution to resolve the issue. I know it works because I have used it quite a number of times over the past couple of years. I still don’t know the cause however and Microsoft don’t seem to have documented the issue at all.
