Scopes and Content Sources

Feb 6, 2010 at 3:34 PM


I have a question about scopes and content sources. I've renamed one of my content sources and one of my scopes because it contained a slash '/' character. That caused some trouble in search, so I decided so remove the character.

Now when search, SharePoint has updated the search scopes to reflect the new name. But when I choose that scope and search, the Search Facets webpart displays an option to choose a Content Source, which lists the old content source name.

Where does the search facets webpart get this info from and how can I get it to update and reflect the new content source names.

Have you tried forcing a full crawl of the newly renamed content source in search admin?

That indeed did the trick, thanks!
