When you use SharePoint Portal Server (SPS) to crawl (that is, to index) a Microsoft Content Management Server (MCMS) 2002 site, you may notice that it takes a long time for the indexing of the site to complete. You only notice this issue all three of the following conditions are met:
You have resources or attachments on posting placeholders.
The resource or the attachment file has a Web page file name extension (for example, .html, .htm, .xml, .asp, or .aspx).
The resource or the attachment file contains relative links to another file that has a Web page file name extension.
One example of a resource or attachment file that has a Web page file name extension and that contains relative links to another file that has a Web page file name extension is a Microsoft Office thicket file. An Office thicket file is a Microsoft Word document that is saved in HTML format.
