Crawl events 2424 and 2436 in WSS 3.0

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 09, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
I'm receiving event 2436: The start address <sts3://mytfsserver:17012/contentdbid={a347226b-0419-454e-a5a8-dbafe37bce87}> cannot be crawled. Context: Application 'Search index file on the search server', Catalog 'Search' Details: Error in the Site Data Web Service. (0x80042616) followed by event 2424: The update cannot be started because the content sources cannot be accessed. Fix the errors and try the update again. Context: Application 'Search', Catalog 'index file on the search server Search' I'm familiar with http://support.microsoft.com/kb/896861 but that doesn't seem to solve the problem.   Server is Windows 2008R2 x64.  I've seen other similar questions posted but most are access denied errors rather than Site Data Web Service (0x80042616) errors. Does anyone know how to solve this? Thanks.

2436 warning followed by 2424 error


We keep getting these two events EVERY 5 minutes in same order. Also we're experiencing slow response meaning that loading page from sharepoint sometimes just hangs for a while before even starts loading page to browser. Can this hanging be somehow related to these logs?

Notice that srv02:3812 is a Central Admin IIS web site ??  Config  db is on ms##ssee and content is on sql express.

I know about 2424 search service built in account issue and service is running under server admin account.


Any help would be appreciated.




Event Type:       Warning

Event Source:    Windows SharePoint Services 3 Search

Event Category:  Gatherer

Event ID:            2436

Windows Sharepoint Services 3 search not working getting event ids 2424 and 2436.


I can login with the accounts for content and the search service on the local server.

I have the loopback reg fix.

But the crawler will not crawl.

I have deleted all search databases in sql and it I have created one from scratch and setup different accounts for the content and search service.

I downloaded and installed windows sharepoint services 3 with service pack 2 on another server and when I used the same accounts that I had on the non working sharepoint install the search worked.



Windows Sharepoint Services 3 search not working getting event ids 2424 and 2436


This the default install running on Windows 2008 64 bit.

Our content database is located on the d drive and the Sharepoint services 3 install located on the c drive.

We constantly get event ids 2424 and 2436 when the index tries to run. Which is every five minutes.

I have the loopback fix in place.

This was working fine and then it stopped working. When doing a search on sharepoint we were able to pull up some data but not the newest data.

I  deleted the search database and created a new one with a new name.

I also downloaded and installed a new install of sharepoing services 3 and used the same domain accounts for the search service and the content and the index worked when I uploaded something. I was able to do a search.

I tried running a repair on the sharepoint services 3 install and it didn't work.

I hope it is not necessary to re-install everything from scratch.


Not exactly sure why I don't get id 2424 anymore but it is not there.


event ids are listed below

Event ID 2424 and 2436


Hi Everyone, having an issue and hoping to get this resolved. 

This is our setup:

MOSS 2007 SP2 farm has 1 Web server (Win 2008 32bit) and 1 SQL 2005 server (Win 2003 64bit). 

Original issue:

We noticed an issue where some task list notifications were showing links to our internal url (http://portal.domain.corp) instead our external url (https://portal.domain.com).  After searching many forums, we changed Public Zone URL (Default) from http://portal.domain.corp to http://portal.domain.com.

Here's how it's setup now:
Alternate Access Mapping Collection: for portal.domain.corp

Default: http://portal.domain.com
Internet: https://portal.domain.com

Current issue:

The change above fixed the task list notifications and all links now point to the correct external link.  The problem now is that we are getting the following errors in the web server:


WCF Tutorial - Events and Callbacks

we described how to make a very simple client/server application where clients would call functions on the server through a shared interface. In this tutorial, I'm going to expand that application to allow the server to execute functions on the client by using callbacks. Essentially, this is WCF's mechanism to allow events to be raised from the server to it's connected clients.

Delegates and events in c#.net

People often find it difficult to see the difference between events and delegates. C# doesn't help matters by allowing you to declare field-like events which are automatically backed by a delegate variable of the same name. This article aims to clarify the matter for you. Another source of confusion is the overloading of the term "delegate". Sometimes it is used to mean a delegate type, and at other times it can be used to mean an instance of a delegate type. I'll use "delegate type" and "delegate instance" to distinguish between them, and "delegate" when talking about the whole topic in a general sense.

How to listen to events within a listview



I've got a listview and I've put a button control in one of the columns, I'm trying to figure out how I have listen to the button click within a certain row, but can't see the button in the dropdown for the IDs I can generate events for.

I'd like to get the primary key of the row that's been clicked on and then run a sql statement against it.

Any help would be appreciated.
