Search Service 'Failed to acquire worker'

    Question

  • Hello,

    I have performed a fresh install of 2013 Foundation and I am seeing this error in my Crawl Log:

    The content processing pipeline failed to process the item. ( Error parsing document 'file://server/gthrsvc_90fd759b-9321-4f60-be24-bbaa3addc400-crawl-0//f5/0x1f5_1.msg'. It was not possible to acquire a worker. Proxy '10' failed to acquire worker. Sandbox worker pool is closed.; Error parsing document 'file://server/gthrsvc_90fd759b-9321-4f60-be24-bbaa3addc400-crawl-0//f5/0x1f5_2.xlsx'. It was not possible to acquire a worker. Proxy '10' failed to acquire worker. Sandbox worker pool is closed.; Error parsing document 'file://server/gthrsvc_90fd759b-9321-4f70-be24 )

    The error is appearing a lot for each incremental incremental crawl of a small site.  200+ times for a site with maybe 50 documents and 300 list items.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thank you,

    Mike

  • Hi,
    Are you using one user for your install and managed service account?

    The install account needs to be added to the local admin.

    For a supported setup, you need 2 users. 1 for installing and 1 for managed service account.

    The install user needs local admin privs, managed account should not have local admin privs.

    Installing as a domain admin is not supported either.

    Here is the UA doc for the required users and permissions setup.

    Hope this helps!

  • Hi Mike,

    when I add the service-application account which runs the search application to the local admin group on the server the error don't appear.

    It's for me not a solution, it's only a workarround.

    Best regards,

  • Jeremy,

    Thank you.  It appears I was a overzealous on my setup and did not follow the proper instructions.

  • I have the same problem and believe all of my accounts are setup correctly. Local admin access doesn't work either.
