We were working on a search project and had three environments with which we were dealing: Dev, Test and Production. All had been seriously neglected in terms of service packs and cumulative updates, so we began the process of updating each environment from straight SP1 to SP2 (WSS and MOSS) with the Infrastructure Update (WSS and MOSS) and the latest (June 2010, KB983311, KB983310) cumulative updates.
Dev and Test went without a hitch, but that wasn’t the case for Production. When attempting to access the search administration pages, we were presented with "An error occurred during the processing of . The resource object with key ‘S2SearchAdminDashboard_Title’ was not found." Ugh!
Doing some Googling turned up this article by Jeff DeVerter. After I screwed up by copying two of the wrong files in his article (didn’t really matter because they were the same) without a positive result, my co-worker looked over my shoulder and identified my error (that sometimes happens when you are working late at night). After getting the correct files copied from a good installation (our staging environment, in this case) to the SSP’s virtual directory, all was well with the world.
Now, on to the August 2010 cumulative updates!
