Windows SharePoint Services 3 Search Event ID 2424


This error started on 29 April and I cannot get rid of it...  My search works fine, both site and people.  AD profile import works fine.  Full and incremantal crawls work as scheduled.  Just that this error keeps showing up every five minutes in one of two WFE's.  The other WFE does not receive this error


I have verified all Security Configuration/Service Accounts, verified all Services on Server/Search accounts, Stopped/Restarted all search, and verified SSP accounts.  The last thing I did was verify there was an indexer attached to the SSP...

I set the diagnostic logging to verbose and the only thing that stood out around the time of the error was

System.Data.SqlClient.SqlException: Invalid object name 'AR_CacheCounters'.

SqlError: 'Invalid object name 'AR_CacheCounters'.'    Source: '.Net SqlClient Data Provider' Number: 208 State: 1 Class: 16 Procedure: 'proc_ar_GetCacheInvalidationCountersWithCount' LineNumber: 3 Server: 'SERVER'


Any suggestions?







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 Error 3351 Windows SharePoint Services 3



I have been fighting this error on my WFE/APP Server for the last two weeks and I have followed the guidance from Microsoft but the fix did not help; the error is still there.  I have also researched a fix on the Internet but could not find anything other than the Microsoft fix.  Every morning between 12:45AM and 1:25AM I receive 11 of event ID 3351 errors on my WFE/App server.  While on my DB server I receive five Error 18456.  Every morning same time 7 days a week.

Any suggestions on how to fix the error? 

We have made no know changes to the MOSS configuration.

Getting Started with Windows SharePoint Services

Of all of the capabilities of SharePoint, I thought I would start with the most basic installation - as a corporate intranet. It is likely that we will need to discuss some of the elements of SharePoint as we go along, so this also gives us the opportunity to review these elements for future reference.

Before going into too much detail, I would like to point out that you can try the core SharePoint framework (known as Windows SharePoint Services or WSS) for free. On Microsoft's Web site you can download a trial version of Virtual PC 2004 (VPC). Using VPC, you can install the Windows 2003 Evaluation Kit and the WSS add-on. This combination will give you 45 days to evaluate the setup.

Building a Searchable Phone Directory with Windows SharePoint Services

I want to continue to build out the intranet site we've started in our previous articles. A standard item in every intranet is a staff/employee list. Most companies implementing Windows SharePoint Services (WSS) are large enough to have a database that contains all employees. We will use the aggregation features of SharePoint to include data from this database into our intranet.

New Features in Windows SharePoint Services 3.0

Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 (WSS 3.0) is the next version of WSS 2.0, released on 2007, and Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 (MOSS 2007) is built on top of this. Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 takes full advantage of Microsoft ASP.NET 2.0 and the core Microsoft .NET 2.0 runtime. WSS 3.0 offers a lot of new features and programmability support. I have consolidated a list of new features and enhancements in the below section:

Take Control: Use SharePoint to Manage Your Windows Services


In this article, we show you how to integrate a Windows Services-based solution with SharePoint. The results enable you to provision, start, stop, and remove service instances through SharePoint 3.0 Central Administration.

SharePoint: Add a Recycle Bin to Windows SharePoint Services for Easy Document Recovery


Windows SharePoint Services helps improve collaboration and workflow while protecting documents and intellectual property. But one feature is conspicuously missing - an easy way to back up and restore deleted files from document libraries. In this article, the authors take advantage of the extensibility of WSS and its server-side and client-side object models to build a restore feature that works like the Recycle Bin in Windows Explorer.

Web Parts: Use Windows SharePoint Services as a Platform for Building Collaborative Apps, Part 2


Microsoft Office SharePoint Portal Server 2003, which is part of the Office System, lets you create and manage virtual servers, site collections, sites, workspaces, and users. You can also use the Windows SharePoint Services object model to design and implement user-targeted applications. In the second part of a two part series, the authors take a look at the WSS and SPS object models, Web Part Page anatomy, creating and deploying Web Parts, and Web Part security. They also discuss Web Part infrastructure and how to create custom Web Parts.

WSS provides the foundation for creating collaborative Web sites that support customization and personalization and SPS complements WSS by playing the role of a content aggregator. This article explains how.

How to upgrade from Windows SharePoint Services 2.0 to SharePoint Foundation 2010 after mistanely de


I need a detailed instruction on how to upgrade From Upgrading from Windows SharePoint Services 2.0  (SBS 2003 ) to SharePoint Foundation 2010.

Background of the case:

I have all my databases (STS-database and STS_Config) saved but, I forgot to save my Virtual Site )Companyweb site) and I mistakenly re-installed IIS on the SBS 2003, hence  I lost the companyweb site. Is this an issue to migrate to Sharepoint foundation 2010. The Sharepoint foundation 2010 is running on a Microsoft HyperV Server 2008 R2
Also, I have created a Virtual 2003 SRV ENT with Sharepoint Services 3.0 running on it. I also have attached my Databases STS_Database and STS_Config)... how do I get it working like a regular website. I have modified the CNAME record to reflect the new server... http://companyweb - it take me to the new site but it loads a blank page. I did create a new CompanyWeb Virtual site on the VHD 2003 server.
Your help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks for your prompt response. Nelson
