SYMPTOMS

When you search for files or for folders over a wide area network (WAN) link from a Microsoft Windows XP-based client computer, the search result set is empty. This symptom occurs even though the files or the folders that you are searching for actually exist. Additionally, you receive the following message:

Search is complete. There are no results to display.

An entry appears in the event log of the client computer that resembles the following: Event ID: 3019
Source: MRXSMB
Detail: The redirector failed to determine the connection type


WORKAROUND

To work around this problem, enable the Search tape backup option when you search over WAN links. This option enables the successful search of files that exist on a slow medium like a tape backup or a WAN link.

To enable the Search tape backup option, use one of the following methods.

Method 1: "More advanced options" is available

If More advanced options appears in the Search by any or all of the criteria below task pane, follow these steps:

  1. Click Start, and then click Search.
  2. In the What do you want to search for? task pane, click All files and folders.
  3. In the Search by any or all of the criteria below task pane, click More advanced options, and then click to select the Search tape backup check box.



Method 2: "More advanced options" is not available

If More advanced options does not appear in the Search by any or all of the criteria below task pane, follow these steps:

  1. Click Start, and then click Search.
  2. In the What do you want to search for? task pane, click Change preferences.
  3. In the How do you want to use Search Companion? task pane, click Change files and folders search behavior.
  4. Under Choose the default files and folders search behavior, click Advanced, and then click OK.
  5. In the Search by any or all of the criteria below task pane, click More advanced options.
  6. Click to select the Search tape backup check box.
