When the database status for a Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 site collection has been set to offline, you may be unable to find items that are saved in the site collection when you search for them.
This problem may occur if you run the Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 site collection on a server that is also running Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007. Search indexing of the Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 site collection may require several crawls to index the offline site collection.
