Consider the following scenario. You use the Advanced Search feature in Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 to search for items that contain a URL. To do this, you run a query that contains a URL property restriction. The URL property restriction includes a port number. In this scenario, no items are returned in the search results. However, if the query includes only the URL and does not include the port number, items are returned in the search results as expected.
For example, if you search by using the following query, no items are returned in the search results:
However, if you search by using the following query, items are returned in the search results as expected:
This issue occurs if the port number does not match the zone in which the site was crawled. A query that uses a URL property restriction relies on the canonical form of the URL. Therefore, a query that contains a URL property restriction that includes a port number does not work if the URL is used in a different zone.
To work around this issue, use one of the following procedures:
- Do not specify the port number in the URL when you run a query that contains a URL property restriction.
- Search by using the URL that is configured in the content source.
Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.
