Sharepoint 3.0 search finds old documents
Posted on 2010-11-29
Our Sharepoint 3.0 website works fine apart from the search function, which appears to be returning old results, not up to date ones.
For example, we have a document called "Work Manual.doc" which we recently updated and renamed to "Work Manual.docx". If you search the site for "Work Manual" it will find only the old document link, which doesn't work ("404 NOT FOUND" error).
If you edit the URL to change ".doc" to ".docx", the document opens.
It looks like the search results need to be refreshed. I've already successfully run:
stsadm -o spsearch -action fullcrawlstart
but this has made no change.
How can I make the search return up to date results?
Thanks in advance!
