I'm bringing up a SP 2010 standard instance and want to configure it to crawl the old WSS3 site collection until the migration is done. I understand that the proper method is to use the STS3 urls rather than http. If I configure http://oldsite.example.com as a source, it works correctly. If I configure sts3://oldsite.example.com I get the message:
"The start address sts3://oldsite.example.com/ cannot be added when crawling the entire web application. Either select to crawl only the SharePoint site, or provide a hostname only start address to crawl."
which is probably the worst error description I have ever read.
What should my search urls look like?
