Sharepoint 2010 search issues/problems

When searching sharepoint 2010 you may receive the following error:

The Web application at https:/// could not be found. Verify that you have typed the URL correctly. If the URL should be serving existing content, the system administrator may need to add a new request URL mapping to the intended application.

This often happens because the proper alternate access mappings is not configured.  For instance if you are webbing into the server via IP you need to make sure you have an intranet or internet setting in the alternate access mappings.  If you have a public DNS then you will need to configure an internal URL with the internet zone.

This is done by going to central  administration

  • clicking application management
  • click configure alternate access mappings

    I was having the same problem. But I did have my AAM setup. But I did not put the port at the end of my url.

    Once I added the port, the search started to work perfectly.
