Search service is not able to connect to the machine that hosts the administration component

I encounter the error above when trying to set up Sharepoint Server Search. I have tried both setting up search manually through Central admin (just selecting default for everything) as well as through Powershell (using this: http://stsadm.blogspot.com/2009/12/creating-sharepoint-2010-enterprise.html). I'm using the farm admin as Search account as well as account for Application pools, so I guess permissions should not be the issue.Creating new Search service application seems to be successful, but when going to Searchadministration after creation, then System status displays the error above. Event log does add any info and just displays same error message ("SearchApi.cs throws exception:The search service is not able to connect to the machine that hosts the administration component. Verify that the administration component 'db397ab0-d9b0-46c4-9077-dc8be62bf586' in search application 'TNS Enterprise Search Service Application' is in a good state and try again."). I have found this http://blog.fpweb.net/sharepoint-2010-server-search-troubleshooting/ stating that the solution is not to use MSDN version of Windows 2008, but does give any explanation why.Any ideas would be appriciated.Best regardsThomas

Can´t set up local system accounts as service accounts in sharepoint 2010

HI I made an inplace upgrade to sharepoint 2010. I want to setup performance point services. but it doesn´t allow me to set a local system account as the application pool account for performance point services application. It doesn´t allow me to register a new account it says The specified user account "domain\username" is a local account. Local accounts should only be used in stand alone mode. The application pool account for the site collection that I upgraded is a local system account so I don´t get it? I tried this http://sharepoint.microsoft.com/blogs/fromthefield/Lists/Posts/Post.aspx?ID=112 However the upgrade fails after this. Is there any way that I do the inplace upgrade and it would allow me to use local system accounts has service accounts? Without Active directory? Thanks

Copy folder from FTP site using SSH to local machine using DOS batch files



Is there a way to copy a folder from an FTP site listening on SSH connection using DOS batch files? I know that there are several third party tools out there that accomplish this. I am NOT looking for that solution. I tried this in Powershell, but could not find a solution, and I am hoping a simple DOS batch file can handle this.


Any help would be appreciated...

Downloading a document from a sharepoint site to local file system, copy web service returns null

Hi Guys,
               I am trying to get this done for the last 2 days and I am still banging my head to the wall.
All I need to do is to download files from my sharepoint site library that uses integrated windows authentication. I was using copy webservice : getItem method to accomplish this.

CopyService.GetItem(copySource, out myFieldInfoArray, out myByteArray);

Problem : myByteArray is always returned as NULL

Note: I have tried the same with another site that uses forms authentication but the result was the same (NULL !!)

This is my code:


Copy copy = new CopyService.Copy();


"net.local" transport in Windows Service



I have been trying the LocalChannel (Channels Extensibility) sample provided with the RC version of .NET 4.0.

For some reason, the channel extension code provided by the sample does not work when hosted in a Windows (NT) service. The WCF client sends the message to the WCF server, but the ServiceHost does not even instantiate a Service instance.

The sample runs fine when hosted in a Console application. What is the reason it does not work in a Windows service?


Creating DSN for local machine in SQL Server Express 2005


Good evening,

This is my first time with SQL Server, so please forgive me if this is a ridiculous question:

I'm trying to create a DSN so I can connect up to SQL Server Express 2005 on my laptop/local machine. I'm attempting to connect via Windows NT authentication. I've tried 'Named Pipes' and TCP/IP settings but am not able to connect. I keep getting an error that states:

SQLState: '01000'

SQL Server Error: 2

Connection failed

SQLState: '08001'

SQL Server Error: 17

SQL Server does not exist or access denied

Is the server created by just installing SQL Server 2005, or is there something additional I need to do? Any help would be much appreciated.

Execute process on remote machine from windows service



I am using Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) to connect to a remote system. I am connecting to a remote system and executing an exe on the remote system. This works if it is a normal exe. I am passing the user name and the password as well.

But when I use the same code in a Windows Service, I get an error which says "Access is Denied." My requirement is to invoke the exe (every 2 hours) on client system from a windows service on the server.

My code looks like this:



processHandle As Integer
