Search Service Instance Error

Posted By:      Posted Date: December 04, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
 

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'.

"Your search cannot be completed because of a service error. Try ..."

  

i have a problem with search function where everytime i search any file/doc the error message "Your search cannot be completed because of a service error. Try your search again or contact your administrator for more information." occurred. I realized that there are items in central admin but it is "not available" in my site. I already follow several guides that had been provided in this forum but still the same. Even, i already create new SSP and configure the search scope, content source and also crawling. 

FYI, i used Microsoft Sharepoint 2007. 

Hope anyone could help me to solve this problem. Thanks.

SharePoint Farm Backup Error in Search instance function

  
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.

Search server 2010 setup - error creating search service application

  
I am running in a very similar siutation as this post:
http://social.technet.microsoft.com/forums/en-us/sharepoint2010setup/thread/3215D0B3-1BEC-4AEE-844D-DECDE9DEA1D8

I am configuring a new Search Server 2010 production environment.

I used the search setup account to run the setup and run the SharePoint Products Configuration Wizard.

During the first run of the SharePoint configuration wizard (where the farm account and service applications are setup), the process failed because the search service application could not be created.  

Errors were encountered during the configuration of the Search Service Application.
System.Data.SqlClient.SqlException: User does not have permissiont to perform this action.

I was under the assumption that the setup account had securityadmin and dbcreator SQL Server roles.  However, this was not the case and I had them added.  My original thought was the setup failed because of this.  After those roles were added, I tried to recreate the search service application and I still get a failure.

I am pretty sure I have followed the prerequisites as prescribed by Microsoft in terms of account setup (

Search Service Error 3 on starting

  

Greetz!

I am very new to Sharepoint but will do my best to help clarify and provide details you may need. We have a 3 server farm with 2 dedicated web front ends. We're running SharePoint 2007 sp2 on Server 2003 Enterprise. No Proxy Server is in use for our search. Our search began having problems a few months ago after a domain wide password change. The indexer stopped working and search would go offline intermittently. 

Not sure if this is related but we were also seeing a lot of 7078 errors in our Event Log with the description: "Job 'Distribution List Import Job' failed. It will be re-tried again in 120 second(s).  Reason: Failed to obtain crawl status."

We are able to start the Office SharePoint Server Search Service in the Services.mmc but it will not start in Central Administration. When I click on Start I get an error message each time reading:

error on attempting to start
An unhandled exception occurred in the user interface.Exception Information: Method failed with unexpected error code 3.

When I go to the 'Manage Search Service' panel in 'Application Management' there is the following info:

Under Query and Index Server it reads: "The Microsoft Search Server Service is not enabled on any server in this farm"

 Under

Error: "The search service is currently offline." when adding a rule to a site search scope

  

We have a portal on our SharePoint farm in which the users want to create a new search scope for that portal only (rather than me creating a global search scope). We are able to create the scope without problem, however when we click "add rules" I get the error message: "The search service is currently offline."

This isn't true though as the search server/indexer is fine and online. We are having problems with our logs so theres no way to troubleshoot this, but I'm wondering if anyone has any insight into the issue.

Activation error occured while trying to get instance of type Database, key "DBName"

  

Im using Enterprise library 5.0
I have a scenario, where I have to access two different databases in my application.

Basically this application is a webservice,delployed on my local for testing purpose.
I'm trying to access this web method from diffent windows application, default connection works fine but the other database throw's exception.

Problem is only my defaultDatabase is works fine, if I change defaultDatabase="MYCON1" with "MYCON2" it works fine, if I try to access the other database which is not default, throws exception.

<dataConfiguration defaultDatabase="MYCON1" />
<connectionStrings>
<add name="MYCON1" connectionString="Data Source=server1;Initial Catalog=dbName1;User Id=Username1;Password=password1;"
providerName="System.Data.SqlClient

" />
<add name="MYCON2" connectionString="Data Source=Server2;Initial Catalog=dbName2;User Id=Username2;Password=password2;"
providerName="System.Data.SqlClient" />
</connectionStrings>


Database myDB=EnterpriseLibraryContainer.Current.GetInstance<Database>(); --> works fine for the default database (MYCON1)


Database myDB=EnterpriseLibraryCo

Error "user does not have permission to perform this operation" with User Instance = True.

  

I setup SQL Server 2005 / SQL Express. All works fine in SQL Server 2005.

I am connecting to a SQL Database from VS 2005,  Tools/Connect to Database. I set the Data Source to "Microsoft SQL Server Database File (SqlClient)" (meaning SQL Server Express) and User Instance = True, and Integrated Security = True.

The above is working successfully on all machines except my Laptop. On my Laptop, I am getting this error "user does not have permission to perform this operation". On my Laptop, if I change User Instance = False, it works fine. Also, If I connect to SQL Server 2005 it works fine only if User Instance = False.

I tried all kind of security changes, nothing worked. For example, I setup Everyone as Full Control for the Folder and the MDF File of SQL Server. I gave my user ID as sysadmin role in SQL Server Express. Also, I enabled creating User Instance form SQL Server Express, Nothing is working.

Appreciate your help.

A little background because I feel I have an out of the ordinary architecture in place and don't know if this is contributing to the problem. 

We have an existing ASP.net application that is undergoing expansion.  The new functionality is all written in Silverlight 4.  As part of that expansion I gutted all the old Linq to SQL and put Entity Framework 4 into place.  To do this I created a standard .net Class Library and added my edmx files there.  Naturally, the business entities created by this cannot be used in Silverlight.  So I created a Silverlight Class Library and added all the business entities to that Silverlight Class Library as linked files.  I changed the name space to be the same.

So I have the following assembly / namespaces

Company.Project.Dal.csproj / Company.Project.Entities (.net 4 class library)

Company.Project.Entities.csproj / Company.Project.Entities (SL4 class library)

With this architecture I was able to share my business entities with my SL enabled web services, my asp.net projects, my silverlight projects.  Really it's a beautiful thing.

Once this was done I added "message" classes to Company.Project.Dal and again shared them with the other entites using linked files.  These messages are things like MyObjectRequest; they are class

Error in / Application after adding employee search in webpart

  

Hello everyone,

I am working on sharepoint 2007 and I was editing the webpart of the software and after adding the predefined employee search table, the server has crashed while trying to access the server remotely with the following error message:

Error in / Application

However, while trying to login locally I have no problem and can easily login.

What will be the course of action in fixing this error.

Also the site is complaining of an invalid certificate even after adding an exception.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.


Thank You,

Chris Stanko
