Missing Metadata Property Mappings while configuring search

Aug 18, 2009 at 12:22 PM

in the search configuration steps in the installation guide there is a step to add new manage properities , the problem is that i cannot find the mentioned mappings like ( ows_AuthorID(Decimal) , ows_Confidentiality , ows_CsId(Text) , ows_PodcastLanguage(Text) , .............. ) , can any one tell me why i didn't find these mappings and how to solve this issue ?

I noticed some of the property mappings missing when I first tried to do this part of the config too. What I noticed is that some of them are not there unless the columns had data in them. So, make sure you have uploaded a podcast and got that working first before attempting this part of the configuration. Just a thought.

Can you try the following steps to initiate a Full Crawl of your site:

1.            Go to the Search Settings page in the Central Administration site > SharedServices1.

2.            Click the link Content Sources under the Crawling section.

3.            Click the Server item and click Start Full Crawl from the listed options.

4.            Periodically refresh the page until the entry in Status column is set to Idle.

 Once this is done you should be able to see the metadata properties.

Hope this helps.
