Hi,

My sharepoint 2010 is working flawlessly. However, the Search Service Crawl does not work.

I found this in the crawl log:

An unrecognized HTTP response was received when attempting to crawl this item. Verify whether the item can be accessed using your browser. ( Error from SharePoint site: HttpStatusCode ExpectationFailed The request failed with HTTP status 417: Expectation failed. )

What is your environment like?  Is everything in the same domain?  Are you only crawling SharePoint sites?

Just found that it works for individual sites but not the main one. Somehow it fails the authentication. I have tried everything with no solution... Tried extra registry settings, disabling ipv6, etc... still no luck... At least for now I can add on sites to the list, better than nothing
