    That sounds like it could be a web.config issue. Are you using Kerberos and/or SSL?

    Platform: 32 bit MOSS SharePoint 2007, service pack 3, cumulative upgrade april 2012
    SQL database is on a separate machine.
    The last 2 full crawls that have been scheduled get about 75% done and then the message
    “Crawling this document could not be completed because the remote server did not respond within the specified timeout. Try crawling the server later, or increase the timeout value. You may also try scheduling crawls during off-peak usage times.”

    When I check the event logs during this most recent occurance, there was no sign of a networking problem – no errors about being unable to access sql server, etc.

    However, what I did discover was that someone had, by accident, scheduled the incremental crawl to run during the time the full crawl was still running.

    I do not see anything on the search admin page to indicate that the incremental started during that time. But I was wondering whether an accidental overlap of this type might result in this kind of behavior.

    The 12 hive log shows that an incremental crawl began during the full crawl.
