FAST Search for Sharepoint 2010 - intermittent socket error 10060 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    We have a 3 node setup with admin running on one node and then the index split over 2 columns on 2 other servers. Intermittently the config server loses it's connection to one of the index columns and we start seeing:

    VERBOSE    systemmsg The ping call resulted in the following exception: pyxmlrpc_client.fault: <Fault 1: 'Not registered!'>

    and then subsequently lots of:

    The ping call resulted in the following exception: socket.error: [Errno 10060] The operation timed out

    Sometimes it comes back of it's own accord other times I have to restart things like the config server to get it to sort itself out. One thing I was wondering is whether IPv6 might be causing an issue, it's enabled on all the servers (Windows Server 2008 R2) and I remember for FAST ESP it needed to be disabled on all servers but not 100% sure the same applies to FS4SP.

    If anyone knows whether this should definitely be disabled that would be great and failing that any thoughts on avenues of investigation would be greatly appreciated.
