Cannot connect to FAST Search server

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 31, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
From the ULS: Failed to connect to myfastserver.mydomain.com:13391 sp. Error=Failed to initialize session with document engine: Unable to resolve Contentdistributor  [documentsubmitterworkerthread.cpp:132]  d:\office\source\search\native\gather\plugins\contentpi\documentsubmitterworkerthread.cpp Docpush -c sp myfile.txt works fine. And I can do a search from FAST search center and find the new file. Q1: How do I determine if SSL is working correctly between my SP Server and my FAST Search Server? Q2: The FAST Search server has port 13391 open. Does this port also need to be opened on the SP Server or are all communications (crawling etc) made over port 443? Q3: Why does the error refer to d:\office... when this the DVD drive (place FAST was installed from)

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

Why is installing FAST Search Server on SharePoint Server not recommended?


According to the following TechNet article http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff381239.aspx, "Do not install FAST Search Server 2010 for SharePoint on the same server as SharePoint Server 2010." is commented in the Important section but there are no justifications to this "non-recommended" approach.  I've searched for an explanation but only found one entry that mentioned for performance reason.

Would you please provide me with an article to substantiate this performance or some other reasons as to why FAST Search Server "should" be installed on its own box?

FAST Search Server 2010 Config Error - ValidationException 1034: Username or domain is incorrect.



I've seen other related threads and I've tried all the tricks in getting through the post-setup configuration, but I can't get by the "ValidationException 1034: Username or domain is incorrect." error message taken from the FAST psconfig log. I've tried both the wizard and the psconfig, but get the same results. I'm attempting to deploy the single server (stand-alone) on a single x64 box, under ws2008 SP2, w/SP2010, the server is also the domain controller, and i've been passing the FQDN to the post-setup script as described in the FAST deployment document (see log below):

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.

Search Server Gatherer - Custom hierarchical protocol handler ISearchProtocol for MOSS 2010



Search server gatherer calls CloseAccessor() and shutdown() on ISearchProtocol after GetChunk() even if the FILTER_E_END_OF_CHUNKS is not returned.

The same piece of code is working fine in MOSS 2007, I am facing this issue in MOSS 2010 only. Is there anything changed in MOSS 2010 which is creating this issue?



FAST Search for SP2010 scope setting works but not getting results.



I am trying this from last two days , but it does not work. I have created two scopes for FAST Search Query SSA , they appear in search center , but I am not getting any results back. I see them being fired in the FAST query log.

First one is a simple one:

New-SPEnterpriseSearchQueryScope -SearchApplication "FAST Query SSA" -Name DCO -Description "All DCO Documents" -DisplayInAdminUI 1 -ExtendedSearchFilter "ContentSource:DCO"

Content source is a managed property. and i can just query "contentsource:dco" from the text box which gives me results.

When I fire the query i see it in FAST Search query log

"GET /cgi-bin/search?qtf_keyword:context=ssgid%3a%3a4d020606-8532-45d8-b09a-db11283cccb4%7cSPS-Location%3a%3a%7cSPS-Responsibility%3a%2c%3a%7c&rpf_navigation:hits=50&rpf_navigation:enabled=True&spell=suggest&qtf_parsekw:timezone=10&type=kwall&qtf_teaser:dynlength=185&resubmitflags=8192&language=en&query=CASHIERING&sortby=%2bdefault&qtf_lemmatize=True&offset=0&version=

Pass the server variable to search core result web part


I'd like to custom the search core result web part to filter results based on the log on user name.

It can easily be done in Dataview web part.

However the search core web part doesn't accept "<parameterbining>" to pass in the server variable [logon_user]. I can't figure out how to use <xsl:param> to get this server variable either.


Any ideas? Thanks a lot!

Office Sharepoint Server Search not working but Windows Server Search is.

I am having an annoying Issue with the Sharepoint 2007 Enterprise search functionality. I cannot get the Search Centre to work, the out of the box webparts crash the page except the Searchbox when the others are closed. The event viewer shows up numerous Errors (Office Sharepoint Server - EventID 7080) returns with and the same when trying to add a search related web part (e.g. core.results, federated etc). EventID 6398 - Timer is a regular as is 7080. Details below.

A network-related or instance-specific error occurred while establishing a connection to SQL Server. The server was not found or was not accessible. Verify that the instance name is correct and that SQL Server is configured to allow remote connections. (provider: SQL Network Interfaces, error: 26 - Error Locating Server/Instance Specified).

Remote connections are connected, I am not 100% on the Instance name, (how would I go about checking this?)

Also I cannot access the link to SharedServices1 - Open Shared Services Admin site (not clickable), guess it's permissions but I seem to have full site permissions, I think I need SSP-Admin to make more edits to the Search, maybe this is related :s

Both Search Servers are runnig, I have tried everything I can think of to fix this and allow the Search Centre to work.

I am running Sharepoint 2007 on SQL Server 2008.
