FAST Search configuration - cannot successfully run SecureFASTSearchConnector.ps1 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I am getting "Failed to connect to my.domain.com:13391 Failed to initialize session with document engine: Unable to resolve Contentdistributor" in my Event Log.

    When I try to run .\SecureFASTSearchConnector.ps1 -ssaName "name of your content SSA" -username "domain\username",

    I get "No valid certificate found to configure your SSA.  Exiting."

    If I run Ping-SPEnterpriseSearchContentService my.domain.com:13391, I get a list of certificates, all of whose ConnectionSuccess is set to False.

    I've tried setting the port to 13390 based on some other posts around here, but that doesn't work.  If I do that and install the "No certificate" certificate, I get "Failed to connect to my.domain.com:13390 couldn't locate certificate: No certificate"

    Please help me get to the root this problem.

     

    Thank you!

  • We ended up just not using https for query traffic. Couldn't get it to work otherwise.

  • Alternatively, is there any way to "check" that my certificates are all correctly configured?  Or, what is the best way to troubleshoot the "Failed to connect to my.domain.com:13391 Failed to initialize session with document engine: Unable to resolve Contentdistributor" message?  I feel like I've done everything I could find on technet.

  • Ok, so it was https. You can only use https with a CA certificate, not a self signed.
