New vanilla install of SharePoint 2013 Foundation.  We've built some lists and some document libraries to test functionality and we've noticed that searching does not return anything in any library or list.

I've checked the Search Application Topology and all seems to be okay there.  Do I need to create a search center (not sure what this is).

Any pointers are appreciated.

No but you do need to set up and run a crawl.  This is done in the Content Sources link in the Search Application.

ACH1LLES - I posted a screen shot.  Is this what you're talking about?  If so, is this a new site I need to set up or something that already exists in SP?

Look in the left Nav for a link called Content Sources.

That was it.  I ran the crawl (only one there) and now searches work great.  Thanks for your help!
