  1. Hi Maxime,

    I have a multi-tenant environment (SharePoint 2010 ). Service farm and application farm. Claims authentication. Different tenants are hosted by one web app.

    I would like to crawl each tenant independently. I just create a new content source and add the host URL of one tenant.

    After having started a full crawl I get 0 success and 1 warning : “This URL is part of a host header SharePoint deployment and the search application is not configured to crawl individual host header sites. This will be crawled as a part of the host header Web application if configured as a start address.”

    If I setup a content source to crawl the all shared environment, the crawl is done successfully. (URL added in the content source settings = URL of the web app hosting the multi tenant / Crawl everything under the hostname for each start address has been selected when creating this content source.)

    There is a way to setup a crawl/content source by tenant?

    Thanks in advance



  2. Hi Baldo,

    not to my knowledge, you set it up to crawl the whole web application.  In your situation, you need to have a different Schedule for a specific tenant?


  3. Hi Maxime,

    Yes, we need to have different schedule for a specific tenant.


  4. it's by design as far as I know but I haven't played with this in a while.  Otherwise, you'd have to use the other parameter and create a content source that explicitely détails all addresses it needs to crawl (i.e.: 1 by 1, not the root address), and create another one for your special tenant that will have a different Schedule.  I don't have a multi-tenant setup close-by to test it though.
