Search (FAST?) won't work if user don't choose "All sites"
Posted on 2011-03-22
I'm trying to get FAST Search Server to work with SharePoint Server 2010. I have no idea how well I'm doing since FAST really has no GUI, it seems, and just sits there. Perhaps I'm using Enterprise Search, who knows?
Anyhow, I been following "Deployment guide for FAST Search Server 2010 for SharePoint", after which I've been working several days with troubleshooting.
The most striking problem I'm having right now is that while people search works, site search usually doesn't. Right now, here's what happens:
If I search for a document I get no result (it doesn't matter if I search in the box on top site, or at the FAST template site); if I then click link "All sites", I find what I'm searching for instantly. (The document is in a library at top level.)
Looking around at logs in Central Administration and Event Viewer, indexing and everything seems to work; of course, the site collection I'm using for my tests is crawled.)
Why could this be, that I need to first search, and then click "All sites" to actually get the results?
