The problem had to do with search. After applying the cumulative patch from Feb, things did not really good.
In the search administration site, under search setting, the Propogation Status showed "Propagation Status - Waiting for Initialization (
Event ID: 6482 was logged in the event log of the query server with the reason being something like this "Object 66a9ed68-c956-4bb3-af4f-3b9eb257a64e not found".
The waiting for initialization error points to the process of of propogation in a stuck state. So got to restarting the Windows SharePoint Administration services on both the query servers (WFE) and the propogration kick started. This services is found in the Services applet in the Administration tools of the WFE servers.
Before doing anything drastic, understand how search works in a SharePoint farm. Know the services involved, know the process involved and the flow of this services from index to propogation.

I like the statement made by the spokesman of Microsoft Germany, that this was a specific attack by highly motivated people. Somehow I doubt that other hackers abusing Internet explorer are less motivated. Money always motivates very well.
Russian hackers who want to plunder your accounts are also highly motivated people. So saying that this is a special occasion is a joke.There will always be people who exploit the weaknesses of software for own gain. Whatever these gains would be.But those hackers would focus on Firefox when 95% of the users would use that. So its not only a IE problem. But saying that this is special occasion would will make all security people laugh".

A plan is nothing more than our best estimate of how a project will be performed. Plans must be modified as a project progresses. The right thing to do is to develop and baseline the deliverables and assumptions and plan to the best of our ability. Imperfect planning is far better than no planning!
The set of plans required for a project are unique to each project. Use this sequence of plan preparation to ensure inter-plan consistency.
- Baseline the Requirements
- Determine the Technical Approach
Determine major risks
- Develop the Work Breakdown Structure (WBS), Organizational Breakdown Structure (OBS), Responsibility Assignment Matrix (RAM), and Financial Control Structure
- Identify resource training needs (as part of the project team training plan)
- Identify risks and perform risk assessment and mitigation planning
- Develop the Schedules, Resource Requirements and Cost Estimates
- Update the Resources and Budgets
- Set up the cost management and control approach (as part of the Cost Management & Control Plan)
- Develop the escalation and jeopardy plans
- Define the project status-ing and reporting Approach (as part of the Communications Plan)
- Define project information system and distribution needs (as part of the Project Information System)
Something is better than nothing.
Start with a baseline and update as project progresses. In time, your baseline gets more accurate.
