Crawl Error Help

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 11, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
I'm noticing a lot of crawl errors with the generic error message "Error in the Site Data Web Service." Most of the URLs throwing the errors are actually plain text 404 pages rather than HTML. The whole page is simply "404 NOT FOUND". Can the iFilters not handle plain text? The 404 NOT FOUND is present in the HTTP headers. Would changing the 404 page to HTML correct this problem?

Crawl Error in Sharepoint 2010 RTM

Hi ,       I am getting the following error on doing a crawl (both Full & Incremental). The SharePoint item being crawled returned an error when requesting data from the web service. ( Error from SharePoint site: *** Index was outside the bounds of the array. ) My Search service account is a Farm administrator and has full control on the entire farm. Thanks,   Vinod.    vinod kumar Bhasyam

Crawl Log error: Access Denied

Hi,I've been using MOSS for a few months. Previously, I've concentrating on developing some specific webpart, so I didn't really test the standard features like search, etc.Just yesterday, I do a search which should return some results, but it shows none. So I checked the Crawl Logs and it shows this 1 error:====https://intranet.companyname.comAccess is denied. Check that the Default Content Access Account has access to this content, or add a crawl rule to crawl this content. (The item was deleted because it was either not found or the crawler was denied access to it.)====I only have 1 Content Source, which is the default "Local Office SharePoint Server sites". The Defaul Content Access Account is a special account created for the crawer. I've tried remote desktop to the MOSS server, opening IE, and try to access that URL using the crawl account, and I can successfully logged in.Any hints on where to look for the problem?Regards.

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!

Crawl Log Error "500 Internal server Error"


We have just recently moved/rebuilt our SharePoint farm in a virtual environment. And everything is working for except the search. The crawl log is giving the following error:-
Error in the Site Data Web Service. (*** Client found response content type of 'text/html', but expected 'text/xml'. The request failed with the error message: -- <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd"> <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml"> <head> <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1"/> <title>500 - Internal server error.</title> <style type="text/css"> <!-- body{margin:0;font-size:.7em;font-family:Verdana, Arial, Helvetica,)

I have tried putting failed request tracing on the web server but it never logs a 500 error. I've also tried changing the crawl account and the web application server that is being used for the crawl and get the same error. Has anyone seen this error before in the the crawl log?



Search Crawl status throwing error



We installed MOSS on our clients machine and Search has been problematic from the getgo.

When we have performed a forced restart on the osearch service (http://bruteforcesharepoint.blogspot.com/2009_04_01_archive.html), within the next couple of hours the crawler status wil be Error. But, search at this point is still working. Indexing basically stops and event errors are thrown in the event logs, but searching is still possible.

Here are the symptoms:

  • the Crawl status is 'Error'
  • /ssp/admin/_layouts/searchsspsettings.aspx (Search Settings page) is throwing a HTTP 403 error : The website declined to show this webpage.
  • I can still get to the Search Administration, and when I go to view the Content Sources or view the crawl logs specifically, I get the same 403 error.

When I try to 'Reset all crawled content', that is when Search dies. I get the message an exception error message.

When I try to stop the Office SharePoint Search service in Central Admin, it hangs in the Stopping state. It'll only come out of this if I go through the task manger and manually force the process to stop and then start it again using the stsadm -o osearch -action start -role index command then search starts again. And I have to reset the crawled content and perform a f

Server moved to a different location error while doing crawl.


I get the below error while doing the crwal. I have  few sharepoint web applications. On some we application, i get the below error.  Not sure what i am missing. The search account has full Read access to the web application. Any hints/links would be great help. I found some info on google but none of them fixed my issue.

The SharePoint server was moved to a different location. ( Error from SharePoint site: HttpStatusCode Found The request failed with the error message: -- <html><head><title>Object moved</title></head><body> <h2>Object moved to <a href="%2f_vti_bin%2fsitedata.asmx%3fAspxAutoDetectCookieSupport%3d1">here</a>.</h2> </body></html> --. )

The sharepoint 2010 is installed on windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise .

Crawl Error - Error in the Site Data Web Service. (Exception of type 'System.OutOfMemoryException'


I have a Sharepoint site that includes a WIki library.  Recently searches have stopped returning any hits from the Wiki pages.  (Search hits from documents and discussions are correctly returned.)  When I check the crawl log from Shared Services Admin site, I see the following error every time a crawl is performed:



Error in the Site Data Web Service. (Exception of type 'System.OutOfMemoryException' was thrown.)


The URL above is part of the Wiki library.  When I look at the raw Sharepoint logs, I see the following entries every time a crawl is performed:

IsapiModule Error 500 Issue


I am about exhausted trying to figure out this error:

HTTP Error 500.0 - Internal Server Error

Description: The page cannot be displayed because an internal server error has occurred.

Error Code: 0x8007007b

Notification: ExecuteRequestHandler

Module: IsapiModule

Requested URL: http://localhost:80/ReportServer

Physical Path: c:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL.2\Reporting Services\ReportServer

When I enable Failed Request Tracing Rules and view the log output I am supposing that the actual problem is in the 2nd call where there are 2 backslashes before the actual filename in the specified path:


CALL_ISAPI_EXTENSION DllName="C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\\aspnet_isapi.dll"

Inserting personal error message in ValidationSummary



I am creating a web form that requires a lot of validation. I use many of the validation control in asp.net already like RequiredFieldValidator and CompareValidator. 

My Problem: after my custom validation for the value entered return an error message, and I pressed enter key when the field is empty, my custom error message is overlapped by my ValidationSummary. 

Setting my custom error to visible = false on button click also does not seem to work as it requires for me to enter the value first.

This made me think, is there a way to insert my custom validation inside the ValidationSummary as an error message like for other validation control?

Thanks in advance

Jscript error: Object does not support property or method


 Hi, i have little knowledge on javascript but i need to use this code get from somewhere for a jquery to work.

I face this "Jscript runtime error: Object does not support property or method" whenever im trying to run this page.

In my experience, im get this error msg 9 out of 10 times i use javascript in my system.

Im using Microsoft Visual web developer 2008, i wonder if this is related to my problem, i not sure there is anything i need to add as reference or update anything.

But anyway, in short, i just couldn't use javascript code when using this development tool because of this sort of error.

Anyway, it happen that last time i tried use the same type of jquery code in another project and it seems to work well without an error.

But now when im try to use it again in this recent project i created, it come out with this error and i have no idea how to solve it even look through google and this forum.

It doesn't really seems like its the code problem itself although im not sure, because any javascript code just couldn't work.

So below is my code that i need to use.

<script type="text/javascript" src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.3.2/jquery.min.js" ></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src=&quo

Type or namespace error.


A couple of days ago I started getting an unusual behavior when compiling Website projects. I have referenced class libraries added to my bin folder that are also correctely referenced in using statements in my aspx.cs code behind. When I compile, I get the 

Error 4 The type or namespace name 'CommonClassLibrary' could not be found (are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?) C:\Dev\Fiscal_Portal\Implementation\FMS Portal Site_new\App_Code\BLL\DataTables.cs 1 7 C:\...\FMS Portal Site_new\

The type or namespace name 'CommonClassLibrary' could not be found (are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?)

error message that would typically be received when the dll has not been added as a reference or added in a using statement.

I can eliminate the error by adding an


HTTP Error 403 - Forbidden


(VB Express website directed me to ASP.NET Web Services which in turn redirected me to this forum).

 Hopefully someone can help me here...... 

I am using VIsual Web Developer and downloaded the small business application to use as a starting point to help my wife get a website up for her small business. When I load the application, I can F5 and it runs fine but as soon as I make any modification to the app and hit F5, I get the HTTP Error 403 - Forbidden when it tries to show the website.

I notice a pop up that occurs when I run that allows me to choose the link for my app and it displays correctly (I close the webpage that has the error on it).

This seems like a pain, is there a setting I'm missing - I would think that this should "just work".

What's up?????
