We are trying to crawl an Oracle Portal from SharePoint 2007.
We are getting a no-index attribute error in the crawl log file.
Does anyone know why we are getting this error? Could it be a setting on the Oracle side blocking the crawler?

The most obvious place to start troubleshooting would be on the Oracle side I would think. Does the crawl log give you a specific url that you can browse to with a browser?
If so, check the html source of the page and see if there is a robots meta tag similar to the following
<META NAME="ROBOTS" CONTENT="NOINDEX, NOFOLLOW">
Secondly, check to see if there is a robots.txt file at the root of the Oracle site which may also be instructing the crawler to keep out.
