After adding alias for the server, the search stopped returning the value.

Alias added to DNS, registered alternative configuration on Intranet and Search Service Application: Server Name Mappings.

What is the problem?

  • You need to explain your case bit further, what is the target of crawling, what version of SP are you using (and which type of search service). Are the items in the index or crawling throws some errors during crawl. – Marek Sarad Jul 9 '19 at 12:23
  • SP 2016 Ent, need add alias name Content Source (Local SharePoint sites) sp and sps3://sp? – Fox Jul 9 '19 at 12:37
  • Server Alias for Local Sharepoint Site?? this doesn't make much sense. Can you elaborate further. – Marek Sarad Jul 9 '19 at 12:39
  • What else to write the rest of the standard, the content of the resource status idle (successfully passed through the entire collection) – Fox Jul 9 '19 at 13:37
  • If you updated AAM you don't need Server Name Mapping. Did you change the Start Address? Usually this will be the problem if you are not crawling the Default Zone. – Matthew McDermott Jul 9 '19 at 14:44

Did you set AAM for your web application? If yes, you need to configure content source using the default zone url.

In addition, if you configure Server Name Mappings, remember to do a full crawl for your content source.
