Access denied error when crawling SharePoint content
One nice day I discovered that MOSS2007 search site didn’t work anymore on test server. Well, the only thing that worked was indexing on file system level. But SharePoint content indexing was out of order. I found some information from web about this issue. Specially helpful may be blog entry Access denied when crawling MOSS Content by Sven Gillis. But it was only part of solution.
There was one more trick I didn’t know. Indexing started work okay when I enabled NTML authentication on site to be indexed. It has only Basic Authentication enabled before.
I hope this post may help somebody.
