    Did search previously work?  Have you installed any recent SharePoint updates?  What is the topology of your farm, specifically related to search?

    Actually, search is still working but from last 2 days new data are not coming in crawl so also not coming in search only old data are coming in search. In addition, each new file in crawl log showing with error “Error in the Site Data Web Service.”  

    No updates are installed recently.

    In my SharePoint farm, there are two servers, one for SQL Database, one for Index server and the same is using for search service.

    One more thing, when I created one more new content source in SSP and now if i am going to delete that newly created content source it is giving error:
    “The application is unable to accept further updates because the last attempt to persist the state failed.  See the event log for more details. ”

    Please guide me.

    Have you tried restarting the Search services and Timer service?  Have you tried rebooting the server?
