I have had SharePoint Foundation 2010 running for a while on one of our Servers with the search function working well. The Databases run on our dedicated SQL server running SQL Server 2008.

I needed to move the SharePoint installation to another server.
I installed SharePoint Foundation 2010 on the other server, connected it to the exsiting server farm and removed SharePoint from the the server it was running on before. I created the new search database and pointed the content databases to use that.
SharePoint and all my sites are running well on the new install, but I am getting the following search error for both sites.
The start address sts4://{358ae624-43ec-4079-b286-12180994cae8} cannot be crawled.

Context: Application 'Search_index_file_on_the_search_server', Catalog 'Search'

      An unrecognized HTTP response was received when attempting to crawl this item. Verify whether the item can be accessed using your browser.   (0x80041204)


I have already tried the "Disable the loopback check" option as per
This has helped me with these type of search errors before, but not this time.

Can anyone suggest anything else?
