I recently migrated my SharePoint 2007 from a single server running Windows 2003, SQL 2005, to a 64-bit farm running Windows 2008 and SQL 2008. Everything appears to be working fine, but search refuses to crawl anything other than the main site and personal pages. All other sites and subsites are just ignored, do not crawl and do not error. The account the search runs as has read control over all the sites. I extended the site to a different zone using a different port and ntlm authentication, and got exactly the same results. None of the sites are host-header based.
What can I do to force SharePoint to crawl my remaining data?
Try 1> check the site and give read permission access to default crawl account.
Try 2> reset the site content from the SSP search administration page. Even before starting the crawl process add some documents to site document library.
Try 3> Extend the site to a different zone with NTML authentication and try to crawl that site.
Try 4> Create a web application without hostheader on none 80 port. and try to crawl that site.
