In Central admin, Search admin, all web parts display a web part error RRS feed

  • Question

  • TThe text of the error is:

    Web Part Error: One of the properties of the Web Part has an incorrect format. Windows SharePoint Services cannot deserialize the Web Part. Check the format of the properties and try again.
    I was checking the search settings because of constant Event 6398 errors which are obviously generated by a faulty search crawler of some such thing.  Here is the text of the event:

    The Execute method of job definition Microsoft.Office.Server.Search.Administration.IndexingScheduleJobDefinition (ID f9395777-cc91-4593-ba49-fd60f445f334) threw an exception. More information is included below.

    Exception from HRESULT: 0x80040D1B

    The rest of the sharepoint site displays web parts fine.
