Check your spelling. Are the words in your query spelled correctly?
Try using synonyms. Maybe what you’re looking for uses slightly different words.
Make your search more general. Try more general terms in place of specific ones.
Try your search in a different scope. Different scopes can have different results.

2. Cause –
==========

The version of following files in Default Web Site’s App_GlobalResources folder and App_GlobalResources folder within Shared Services Provider virtual directory is different after service pack 2 update:
App_GlobalResources\searchadmin.en-us.resx
App_GlobalResources\SearchAdmin.resx
App_GlobalResources\sps.en-US.resx
App_GlobalResources\sps.resx
_app_bin\layouts.sitemap

– Cut and move the following files from Shared Services Provider virtual directory:

App_GlobalResources\searchadmin.en-us.resx
App_GlobalResources\SearchAdmin.resx
App_GlobalResources\sps.en-US.resx
App_GlobalResources\sps.resx
_app_bin\layouts.sitemap

– Copy the file searchadmin.en-us.resx and SearchAdmin.resx from c:\program files\common files\Microsoft shared\ web server extension\12\config\resources and paste it to App_GlobalResources of the SSP web application

– Copy sps.en-US.resx and sps.resx from

C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\wss\VirtualDirectories\80\App_GlobalResources and copied it to C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\wss\VirtualDirectories\SSP\App_GlobalResources

  1. Thank you! This solution worked for me, but only after I created a new SSP and copied the _app_bin\layouts.sitemap from that new web application to the broken SSP. None of the existing layouts.sitemap files worked.
