Most likely file system permissions on the server are not correct so it cannot write the index.

Re: Rebuliding Search index problem at server location

Hi,

Have you checked the System Log? It is located at Administration > System Log.

Your best bet for checking the log is to clear it, rebuild the search index and then check the log again. This process will help limit the number of messages in the log to make it easier to read and possibly find the problem.

HTH,

<add key="SearchIncludeModuleRoleFilters" value="true" />

then i clear the Systemlog , and i clicked  the rebuild search index button then i got a message "The Search Index for the site is currently being built. Please wait a few minutes and try your search again."

after thet i goto admin--->Systemlog ,i have  a message in System log is

Re: Rebuliding Search index problem at server location

Are you using a custom build that you produced yourself from source code or one of my pre-compiled packages? If you made your own build you may have left out some files related to building the search index, these files exist under /Setup/ProviderConfig/indexbuilders

You should also see IndexWriterTask will start about 10-15 seconds later, indexing is not instantaneous, it takes time, it will serialize content into the mp_IndexingQueue table and then the task will process the rows in this table and write to the index, for a large site it can take a little while and if you do anything that recycles the app pool it will kill the task and it cannot finish, so for example you should not manually restart the app or touch Web.config after you start the rebuilding or that will kill it.

Hope it helps,

Joe
