Today i ran into a problem while trying to crawl/index from the User Profile :
The start address sps3://…. cannot be crawled
The object was not found
sps3 is the protocol to crawl User Profile informations on SharePoint.
Possible reasons :
- You are having a multi farm architecture and configured AAM : solution is to change the URL after sps3 to use the Url you configured on your DNS and AAM
- You are using HTTPS : change sps3:// with sps3s://
If it helped you, please leave a comment.
