Starting a WSS Full Crawl

Vladimir Buyevich Senior SharePoint Consultant
Sep 15, 2009

A quick and easy way to start a full crawl on the WSS search is to execute this stsadm command:

stsadm -o spsearch -action fullcrawlstart

If you happen to perform this operation often times, it might be a good idea to have this command on a batch file and simply execute the batch file on demand.
