How we do a full crawl in Sharepoint Foundation 2010?

  • I followed your steps and get Failed - "Requested registry access is not allowed." after I checked on the job history status. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Checklist inside Central Administration:

  • Services on Server -> SharePoint Foundation Search is started.
  • Manage Web Applications -> Highlight SharePoint 80 -> User Policy -> Set crawl account to full read.
  • Manage Content Content Datases -> WSS_Content -> Search Server -> Select the Search Server for Foundation 2010
  • Monitoring -> Job Definitions -> SharePoint Foundation Search Refresh -> Run Now

This does your index reset and full crawl.


Or via Powershell

GEt all data about your Search Service via

Get-SPSearchService | select *  

after this you shall find something like JobDefinition : {NAME}

or go for

(Get-SPSearchService).jobdefinitions | select *

which shall give you all details about TimerJobs associated with Search. and simple use

Set-SPTimerJob "<NAME>"
   -Schedule "daily between 01:00:00 and 04:00:00"
