SharePoint Farm Backup Error in Search instance function

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 08, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
 
I'm working with MS Project Server 2007 with SharePoint WSS. When doing a full farm backup in SharePoint Central Admin > Operations > Backup and Restore > Perform a Backup, I encountered 2 errors in "SharePoint Windows Services Search, Search instance". 1) Error: Object a8b2cbfe-ef8b-45ce-92a0-c5675f534ec0 failed in event OnBackup. For more information, see the error log located in the backup directory.  InvalidOperationException: System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.    at Microsoft.SharePoint.Search.Administration.SPSearchBackupRestoreTimerJob.Execute(Guid targetInstanceId)   2) Error: Object a8b2cbfe-ef8b-45ce-92a0-c5675f534ec0 failed in event OnBackupComplete.

Full Farm Backup Fails on Windows Sharepoint Services Search Database

  
I am just now starting to us central administration to backup the entire sharepoint farm.  All content backups fine except for the Search Database.  In looking through the backup log, it appears that the search database may not exist.  How can I determine if the search database actually does exist and if it does not can it be recreated?

Backup SharePoint 2010 farm configuration settings only get an error for not enough disk space when

  

Hello

I am trying to do a backup the Backup using the Backup and Restore feature in SharePoint 2010 Central Administration.  I just want to backup only the farm configuration settings only.

so I followed the GUI 

Open CA Backup and Restore, checked the Farm checkbox,  click Next 

I chose the following:

Backup Type :  Full

Data to backup:  Back up only configuration settings

Backup File location  :   use an UNC shared location   \\servername\sharedname

at this point,  I see the Estimated disk space required is:   1.2 GB 

the server hard disk available space is  30 GB

but when i click the Start Backup,  i got an error in RED saying "There is not enough disk space. Free additional space on your hard disk and then try again. Approximate amount of space needed is 40 GB.   Amount of space free on disk:  30 GB."

Why is this happened?  and the estimated disk spaced required still showed at 1.2GB

If anyone had experience this problem and have a solution, please advice

Thanks

The URL 'ao/AO Document/Admin Guideline/xxxxx.jpg' error on 2nd SharePoint server in farm

  
We just added a 2nd SP2007 server to mirror our site.  The original site is in China, the new site in the US.  They are connected via a permanent  site to site VPN.  We are hitting the errors when attempting to upload files to the US mirror.    Environment: US server site: OS: Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise (64 bit) APP: Windows Sharepoint Server 2007 Enterprise SP2 (64 bit) DB: Windows SQL Server 2008 Enterprise R2 (64 bit) China site: OS: Windows Server 2003 Enterprise SP2 (32 bit) APP: Windows Sharepoint Server 2007 Enterprise SP2 (32 bit) DB: Windows SQL Server 2008 Enterprise R2 (32 bit) Background: We setup two test Sharepoint farm to be syncronized with only its content database. The upload works good on SZ site. But we got the following 2 error messages randomly when uploading file to document library of SF side. Error message: 1. The URL 'ao/AO Document/Admin Guideline/xxxxx.jpg' is invalid.  It may refer to a nonexistent file or folder, or refer to a valid file or folder that is not in the current Web. 2. Cannot open file "ao/AO Document/Admin Guideline/xxxxx.jpg". -- We've tried the official hotfix, altering the schema, changing the IIS memory limit settings, and restarting the application pool. Could the issue be related to the different OSes 2008 vs 2003, or 32 vs 64bit?

SharePoint 2010 search error - Illegal operation attempted on a registry key that has been marked fo

  

I've come across an error with SP2010 standard search a few times now.  The error message is "Illegal operation attempted on a registry key that has been marked for deletion", and it happens when "SearchService.svc" is accessed by SP Search.  I have seen this error on my dev environment, test environment and a client's UAT environment.  The resolution is a reboot of the server, but that's obviously far from ideal.  I've tried to restart all SharePoint related services too without any luck.  This error doesn't seem to occur regularly, and can take days before it happens after a reboot.

 

The full error message is below:

 

Server Error in '/4ca4d32e32d848338cab8aeeb78f7a2b' Application.


SharePoint 2010 search crawl error: The SharePoint item being crawled returned an error when request

  
SharePoint 2010 search crawl error:
The SharePoint item being crawled returned an error when requesting data from the web service. ( Error from SharePoint site: Specified argument was out of the range of valid values. )

This error is for both document and folder. The document and folder were created/uploaded via SharePoint User Interface only. Later these doc/folder were deleted. And we found the search result showing the documents that were deleted from the doc library resulting in '404 page not found error' upon clicking. Ofcourse we did an incremental crawl after  deleting the file/folder. The error is same even after full crawl.

Environment details:
1 server - WFE role
1 server - App server role
1 server - index server role

Another information if helpful: We used some third party tool to migrate few sample data in the same server but on different site collection, different content database but on the same web application. The tool migrated the data and set unique permissions too for the migrated files. We tried deleting them via SharePoint interface and that files too gave a similar error!

SharePoint 2010 Search Error ID 6398

  

Hi

we have installed Sharepoint 2010 on a single server non-domain server following this article: http://sharepoint.microsoft.com/blogs/fromthefield/Lists/Posts/Post.aspx?ID=112 and we are now have issues with the search- whether they are related or not I am not sure.

SharePoint Enterprise Search 2010 Error

  

Hi All,

We have two server farms:

1. MOSS 2007 Server Farm having Web application and its pages and content

2. SharePoint 2010 Farm having Enterprise Search 2010 with one Web Application using Search Template

We are trying to crawl the MOSS 2007 web application, which on a separate farm from the SharePoint 2010 box. We created the Search Service Application, Web Application and have associated the Web Application with the Search Service Application.

We have provided the scopes for searching the MOSS 2007 Web Application for its content and pages and also provided separate scope for searching people from the MOSS 2007 box using the appropriate SPS2/STS3 protocol.

We have also made a change in the Search Settings of the MOSS 2007 Site Collection to redirect the search to the SharePoint 2010 box, when any user uses the Search box of MOSS 2007. This works perfectly well.

Appropriate read-only rights have been given to the web application using the Central Administratoin web application policy.

The only issue we have is, when a user tries to visit the search results pages on the SharePoint 2010 box, and when displaying the search result, SP 2010 box hits MOSS 2007 box  to fetch the require data and displays pop-up box for Authentication.

Is there anyway, where we can supress the Authentication

There are two issues here

1. As mentioned by ram, we have two boxs [MOSS 2007 and SP 2010 for Enterprise Search] so when user clicks search from MOSS 2007 site it is redirected to SP 2010 box and while redirecting to SP 2010 box it displays Authentication popup. Is there any way we can supress this Auth

Sharepoint 2010 - Error while running Configuration wizard for SP 2010 server farm

  
Hi All,

I am trying to set up a SP 2010 farm. I have windows server 2008 R2 installed and was able to install SP 2010 successfully. However when I ran the Sp 2010 Products and configuration wizard I am getting the following error at Step 3.

 Failed to create the configuration database.
An exception of type System.Collections.Generic.KeyNotFoundException was thrown.  Additional exception information: The given key was not present in the dictionary.
System.Collections.Generic.KeyNotFoundException: The given key was not present in the dictionary.
   at System.ThrowHelper.ThrowKeyNotFoundException()
   at System.Collections.Generic.Dictionary`2.get_Item(TKey key)

I have installed all the prerequisites and I am on Microsoft Geneva Framework 1.0.30624.0 . I saw on a blog that Microsoft Geneve Framework beta 2 will actually cause the above problem. However I encountered the error with Beta 1 version as well.

Any ideas why this is happening?

Microsoft Sharepoint Backup - Server Farm Name

  

I am having problems backing up Microsoft Sharepoint Server Farms in a third-party backup solution.

When I want to add a server farm an 'add Server farm' box appears with the following message; To discover a server farm I need to enter a web server name that belongs to the server farm I want to backup. I suppose that the web server name is the FQDN of our WFE server. I fill that in and leave the default name for the Server Farm (e.g. Server Farm 1) but then when I click on OK the following message appears: None of the Web servers for the specified server farm could be accessed.

 

I don't understand. Do I have to provide the name of a specific server farm associated with the web server? I can't remember ever giving a name to my server farm. I've checked Central Administration but I can't find a name for my server farm. Does anyone have an idea what this could be?

 

Thanks

 

 


Search Service Instance Error

  

I have two content sources for crawling. One is working fine on its scheduled crawls and manual crawl triggers, while the other just remains idle. The 12 hive logs produced the following error:

SearchDataAccessServiceInstance.Synchronize(). searchserviceinstance status is bad. Object statuses: ssp status Online sspdb Online searchdb Online ssp search service instance -1 local search service instance Online

I thought that it was strange to see the bolded object set to -1. I figured it would be either Disabled (0) or Online (1).

 

Some additional logging for search around the line I posted:

CheckForUpgradingAndReturnStatus synchronize logic finds the SearchContext.SearchApplication.IndexServiceInstance is null for ssp 026fe9bf-e705-4be7-8340-da57a6c47db7, the application registry will get removed 

SearchDataAccessServiceInstance.Synchronize(). searchserviceinstance status is bad. Object statuses: ssp status Online sspdb Online searchdb Online ssp search service instance -1 local search service instance Online 

Configuring the Search Application web service Url to 'https://SERVERNAME:56738/SSPNAME/Search/SearchAdmin.asmx'.
