Out Of The Box Sharepoint (?)

Search: Host headers – FQDN – Loopback address

Filed under: Sharepoint — Peter Kruisman @ 7:28 am

My Sharepoint2010 search content sources consist of multiple web application that share port 80 . Each of them has a hostheader: webapp-name.domain.suffix.
Only the content source with the fully qualified domain webapp-name (FQDN) was indexed the others errored out: event ID 14 “The start address [address] cannot be crawled”, “Access is denied” .  The content source with the FQDN is the local loopback address. This kb  http://support.microsoft.com/kb/896861  “Authentication fails if the FQDN or the custom host header that you use does not match the local computer name” suggest to resolve this issue to disable the loopback in the registry. After I applied this all my content sources are indexed.
