Blog/20130321 Spotlight fix
Spotlight in OS X has always been of a mixed blessing. Now on OS 10.7.5 it's no different. So it just broken again.
sudo mdutil -E VOLUME sudo mdutil -i on/off VOLUME
didn't work with error: 'Error: unexpected indexing state. kMDConfigSearchLevelTransitioning' or 'Error: Index is already changing state. Please try again in a moment.'
This comment thread of this post here suggested
sudo launchctl unload -w /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.metadata.mds.plist sudo launchctl load -w /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.metadata.mds.plist
which re-enabled spotlight! Thanks!!
