I am having issues getting search to work in a Site Collection that is in a managed path. My site structure is as below:

Publishing Site

---Managed Path

-----Site Collection

The search is working on the Publishing site, but how do I get the search to work from within the Site Collection?

I have found that the load balancer that we are behind did not have NAT enabled. Once that was enabled that seemed to have resolved our issue.


How is it not working? When searching in a site collection typically it will only returns results from that site collection.

Do you have a search center created? Is your site collection configured to use that search center?

  • No results are returned. Is the search center specific to that site collection? If so, I don't have a search center created. The main site search is working.

  • The search center is a seperate site collection, and then in your site collection's search settings, you enable custom scopes and put in the path to the pages library of your search center. Commented Jun 5, 2012 at 13:36
