The WSS project I was working, we have to implement a search mechanism, it should search all the stuff. But the problem, I didn’t see the SharePoint search, and how the results will getting display? While clicking on the search button it will throws an error like “The search request was unable to connect to the Search Service”. I have tried lot of things like changing the Search service running permissions, etc. But nothing happened. And from one MSDN blog I got that I have to start the Indexing service, which is disabled by default. I have logged as Administrator and started the Indexing service from Administrative Tools > Services. Then Indexing Service. Changed the properties, disabled to manual. And started the service. Then I resets the IIS. Clicked Search, in the WSS screen
WoW ! it is giving some results.
