Unable to search BDC externally

Posted By:      Posted Date: April 10, 2011    Points: 0   Category :C#

I have added a BDC column to my list.  When I am inside my network, I can click on the search icon for the BDC field and look for items.  However, when I login externally through our ISA Server I am not able to use the search icon to look for items.  I receive a 500 error page.  What do I need to change to make this work externally?

Search request unable to connect to the Search Service.

I have searched through other similiar topics and have not been able to get it working again properly. I've tried deleting the Search Service account out and all associated information and created a new one. My crawl logs show that they are successfull and that I have content available in my local sites, as well as my people listed. I have disabled loopback checks, given the default content access account owner access on the databases. Everytime I do a search, I get that error message listed as the subject. I'm running a 4 server farm setup with 1 DB, 1 App, and 2 WFE's. Everything was working fine and now I can't get back working right. I have hammering at it all day and need some additional input of where to look. I'm no SharePoint expert by any means, but I'm slowly getting used to everything. Please help!

The search request was unable to execute on FAST Search Server



Yesterday Fast search service (and MOSS) works fine. But today after restarting Fast search service I've got an error in client applications: The search request was unable to execute on FAST Search Server.

Anyway Fast Search for Sharepoint (node controller) service is running, but every ~30 seconds my Windows Event Log fills with an exception:


Faulting application name: fsearch.exe, version: 14.0.313.0, time stamp: 0x4ba1ef55


Faulting module name: MSVCR90.dll, version: 9.0.30729.4926, time stamp: 0x4a1750b0

The search request was unable to connect to the Search Service.


I recently ran out of space using WS 3.0 and I used Microsoft KB to move the 3 databases (Admin_Content, Config and Search). That took care of the space problem but now i receive this error message every time we perform a search.

In Event Viewer I have several errors: mostly:

  • ID 10039 Retry of query machine 'BACKUPSERVER' has failed with error: The system cannot find the file specified.   0x80070002.  It will be retried again in 120 seconds. Component: 304be312-beec-4f60-98cc-3698c9a54dd
  • ID 10040 The last query machine has been taken out of rotation.  Check previous event logs to determine cause.  Propagation may be necessary. Component: 304be312-beec-4f60-98cc-3698c9a54ddd
  • ID 10038 Query machine 'BACKUPSERVER' has been taken out of rotation due to this error: The system cannot find the file specified.   0x80070002.  It will be retried in 15 seconds. Component: 304be312-beec-4f60-98cc-3698c9a54ddd

All SP services are running.

Any help will be great.

Thank you

Unable to perform fulltext search for documents in some folders in an SharePoint Document Library


Issue Description : Keywords from certain folders in the Document Library  is not searchable via full text search. For example, the keyword “4MB7106” is not searchable, even though the document is available in the document library. This is content search in a file in a document library, NOT a file name. Any ideas?

WSS 3.0 Timer Error "6398" are getting generated 1 per minute.Unable to access Search Settings Page

Dear All
We are facing a terrible error which keeps getting generated exactly one per minute and i cant access Search Settings page as well.
I have already tried whats defined in the article below.
After that the errors stopped generating.
But after few hours they started generating again. Iam assuming its because the timer job didn't executed during that period.
We have two servers. One is MOSS and the other is Database Server with SSRS in Sharepoint integrated mode therefoew it is also a web front end server.
I have configured MOSS Server for everything i.e. as Index Server, Executing Search Queries etc. "Is this Ok? or can i use SSRS Web Front End Server as Dedicated server for indexing / All WFE Servers for indexing"
I am using SharePoint Farm administrator as search service account. Same user is used for all other services as well.
I have changed the "Indexed files path" but given full access and files are getting generated in it.

MS SQL Server: Search All Tables, Columns & Rows For Data or Keyword Query

If you need to search your entire database for specific data, this query will come in handy.

So when a client needs a custom report or some sort of custom development using Great Plains, most of the time I will have to track down the data in the system by running this query and find the table(s) it is in.
