OSX.6.8 Server



Problem: Spotlight is not indexing. We deleted the index for reindexing and now its impossible to search anything.




Reason: the process mdworker which is normallly launched with the launchd pocess during booting and is used by _spotlight, is not running.


The process mds which is launched by launchd and used by root is running.


I restarted the server, still silence with mdworker.



With mdworker not running Spotlight simply does nothing.



Any help is appreciated.

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.8)
