@Kate Nope, I never solved this issue and just worked around it.

comment Search, How to bypass hardware load balancer?
MS support told me to create a host file entry with the IP of the WFE and the hostname of the WFE. I have no idea why that worked (because ping for the WFE name went to the WFE IP without the host entry) but that solved my problem.

We are on the latest update. I'm out of ideas also. I plan to open a MS premier support ticket. I'll follow up with the outcome.

Yes, pinging both the HLB and server addresses gives back the correct IPs. I think its unlikely a DNS issue and likely a configuration issue. Something is telling it to do a HTTPS crawl against the HLB and not a HTTP crawl against the WFE.

All the traffic is HTTPS so Wireshark doesn't show the host headers. I probably won't be able to get the private key the HLB has for the cert it uses. Potentially I may be able to put a Fiddler proxy up and route the traffic through that to decrypt it.

I did try that, but I didn't get any search results. To be clear, the host file entry contains the IP address of server1.company.com with the HLB address. A potential reason the crawl failed is that I believe it was trying HTTPS against the server IP address, but the server1 only has port 80 open.

Unfortunately no change of behavior by removing the Server Name Mapping.

This is interesting, despite it being for SharePoint 2007. Unfortunately I don't have a server dedicated to crawling. The one doing the crawling is one of the two WFEs.

Because the Network Engineer is thoroughly monitoring the HLB traffic because we're seeing performance issues impacting many other apps behind the HLB. That, and now I'm using Wireshark to make sure I know exactly what's happening when I do a crawl.

But that's the way I currently have it and it's still using the HLB addresses. See above where Central Administration > Search Service Application: Edit Content Source has Start Addresses: http://server1.company.com. Or am I missing the correct place that you're talking about?

Unfortunately these don't help. I don't completely understand the first link, but that seems to be creating a custom user control to display the thumbnails. I had already found the second link. The first line it says When you upload images to a SharePoint picture library three images are actually stored.. My problem is that only one image is being stored.

Yes, I know this because I regularly get timer alerts
