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 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

Search Web Service : The search request was unable to connect to the Search Service

  
Hi,

Following is my code for seraching using spsearch.asmx.

string keywordString = "Microsoft";

//The XML string containing the query request information
//for the Web service
string queryXMLString = "<QueryPacket xmlns='urn:Microsoft.Search.Query'>"+
"<Query><SupportedFormats><Format revision='1'>"+
"urn:Microsoft.Search.Response.DocumentBig Smileocument</Format>"+
"</SupportedFormats><Context><QueryText language='en-US' type='STRING'>"+
keywordString + "</QueryText></Context></Query></QueryPacket>";

WSspsearch.QueryService wsSPSearch = new WSspsearch.QueryService();
wsSPSearch.Credentials = System.Net.CredentialCache.DefaultCredentials;
wsSPSearch.Url = "http://server:3838/_vti_bin/spsearch.asmx";
string queryResultsString = wsSPSearch.Query(queryXMLString);
TextBox1.Text = queryResultsString;

I am getting following error:
<ResponsePacket xmlns="urn:Microsoft.Search.Response">
<Response domain=""><Status>ERROR_NO_RESPONSE</Status>
<DebugErrorMessage>The search request was unable to connect to the Search Service.

"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.


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

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

  
I'm expierencing this error message and am not sure what to do to fix this.  I don't want to break anything else on our farm.   The search service is not able to connect to the machine that hosts the administration component. Verify that the administration component '9139bef7-69a3-4125-9d0e-e09484cc24ee' in search application 'Search Service Application' is in a good state and try again. Nothing appears under topology.  It just continues to load.  Any suggestions would be appreciated.

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 (

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!

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:

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"
