SYMPTOMS

In Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 or in Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services 3.0, you detach a content database and then reattach it to the same Web application or to another Web application. After you do this, no search results are returned when you perform a search.

CAUSE

This issue may occur when the full crawl that is required after you reattach the database is not yet finished. Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 and SharePoint Server 2007 require a full crawl after you reattach the database because the change log is removed during this process.

Note The full crawl can take some time before it shows complete results that include new content.
