FROM
msdb.dbo.sysmail_event_log

SharePoint Search

I had a problem in SharePoint Search. That when I tried to search content, even though data is available no result was displayed. To overcome that problem below step were used.

* Clicked on the "Search Settings" which is in the created Shared Service page as shown below.

















* Then clicked on the "Content sources and crawl schedules" in Configure Search Settings as
shown below















* After that opened the content source's context menu by left clicking the down arrow and
selected "Start Full Crawl" to index all files. This would start the indexing process. Figure is
shown below.















* After that SharePoint Search works correctly.
