Exchange 2010 Search Indexer

I have an Exchange 2010 server where the search catalog seemed to be corrupted.  I ran the script included with Exchange, resetsearchindex.ps1 - force.  It deleted the catalog folders, restarted the service and seemed to work fine.  However, searching works in Outlook now, but not via OWA.  Thoughts?

I had to flush the log files.  I shutdown the Information store, verified the database was in a clean shutdown state with eseutil /MH.  Tehn removed the log files.  Then, I ran the script resetsearchindex.ps1 and the inddexing and serching started to work again.

How long have you waited for the index to be rebuilt? You will get Application event log entries when it's complete.

Outlook in cached mode will preferentially use a local index anyway. OWA doesn't have that luxury.

How large is the mailbox database? Have you checked your application event log for anything relevant to the index?

The mailbox database is aroung 50GB.  OWA Search worked prior to running the reset (at least it returned some results, just not complete).  Now all searches are blank, but Outlook works.

If you look at the database in Exchange Console - and it reports the indexing is in healthy state - all you have to do his stop and start the information store.  There is absolutely no need to do all these database removals and rebuilds : )  LOOK at the state of the indexing.
