SharePoint Search Admin Errors RRS feed

  • Question

  • Browsing to half of the options in search admin page results in an error. Checked ULS and nothing is jumping out at me. No changes that I am aware of recently.

    All of the search service endpoints are up and running. All permissions set correctly in SQL. All search and crawl accounts are enabled.

  • Hi Michael, This was my next step which gave me a DCOM error. 

    I performed an IISReset on the query and crawl server and everything came back ok. Strange as the servers had been rebooted a few days earlier to no avail.

  • Just ran a script in UAT (where search is working) to see  what the default content access account is and it returned ok,

    in Prod the script returned blank which leads me to believe that it has become un set somehow and may be causing the above errors

  • Hello,

    In your second  screenshot, the Default content access account  shows All Errors. It could be that caused this issue.

    Please try to use the below powershell to set default content access account:

    #Set Default content access account
    $AccountID = "sp13\michael"
    $Password = Read-Host -AsSecureString 
     
    #Get Search service application
    $SearchInstance = Get-SPEnterpriseSearchServiceApplication
     
    #Set default content access account for crawl
    Set-SPEnterpriseSearchServiceApplication -Identity $SearchInstance -DefaultContentAccessAccountName $AccountID -DefaultContentAccessAccountPassword $Password
    
    

    Best Regards,

    Michael Han
