I am trying to get into SharePoint Server 2010 and I have a problem with the Search Service which I am not able to figure out. I am running Sharepont Server 2010 Std and SQL Server 2008 x64 on two Windows Server 2008 machines. I created a Web Application called 'Intranet' with a site collection which is the root and a site collection for the Search Center site. On the web application I configured an alternative mapping for intranet.domain.com. I also use SSL. so in order to get to the Intranet Site Collection you have to use https://intranet.domain.com
I also setup the Search Service and it is successfully crawling the URL https://intranet.domain.com. When I now access the search center page and search for the term 'cisco' - the it finds results. If I use the "search" on the main page then I only see this:
"We did not find any results for cisco."
That does not make any sense to me at all.
Can someone please help me and tell me what I am doing wrong because oviously the crawling process works fine.
